I have camped at Arrowhead Park during the summer months, it’s beautiful. The park has always been open in the winter and offered crosscountry ski trails, snowshoeing, hiking and have now added a skating trail! I’ve skated on outdoor rinks and on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa but never through the forest.
We only live about an hour away from the park, great way to spend the day, I can’t wait to go !
The Ice Trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park
Opened in 2012 at Arrowhead Provincial Park just north of Huntsville, the Ice Trail is a 300 metre skate path set amidst the snow-dusted trees that wind through the East River Campground. Offering skate rentals for the whole family, this totally unique trail is a fantastic activity that lets you explore Ontario’s great outdoors in winter in a fun new way.
Whether you are an expert skater or just starting out, the Ice Trail offers an opportunity for anyone, regardless or age or ability, to enjoy the fresh air this season. Day time skating parties can also be arranged, and camp sites can be booked for afternoon campfires, for time with family and friends. Such a blast!
