Arrowhead Provincial Park Ice Trail & more!


Remember, the trail is always weather dependent (i.e if the temperature is above 0°C, park officials might need to temporary close the skating trail). We always recommend checking the Arrowhead Park ski report prior to leaving your home to make sure that the trail is open. Park staff update the report every day, first thing in the morning.

Ontario’s best kept secret…might not be a secret anymore. The Ice Trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park has graduated from local folklore, to becoming a mainstay in Muskoka’s winter season! Opened in 2012 on a whim and a vision, the Ice Skating Trail has become one of the region’s most popular winter attractions, and one of the province’s most sought after winter ‘bucket list’ experiences.

The 1.3 km Ice Skating trail winds through the thick Muskoka forest and is a winter experience like no other. If you get to skate the loop after a fluffy snowfall, consider yourself in luck. Being surrounded on all sides by snow-covered evergreen trees is an absolutely stunning sight, and one that you won’t soon forget. Bring your family and watch your kids whip around the track with the perfect backdrop, or surprise your loved one with a romantic ‘hand-holding’ skate through the forest.

Other park activities include:

Cross-country skiing: There are 28 km of classic ski trails and 16 km of skate ski trails, ranging from beginner to expert level
Snowshoeing: explore the 8+ km of marked snowshoe trails, as well as off-trail snowshoeing through mature hardwood forest
Hiking: go for a snowy hike, enjoy winter birding, or winter camping
