Top 3 Trails for Ontario Ice Skating

Ontario is known for its countless Muskoka winter activities, such as snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing. However, the Muskoka trails dedicated to ice skating are the most notable activities around! Four of Ontario’s top 12 ice skating trails are in Muskoka—Bracebridge, Bala, Huntsville, and Port Carling. Each one of the Ontario ice skating trails is under an hour commute from our Patterson Kaye Resort. There’s even an ice skating trail in Ontario that’s just ten minutes away… and free! Take advantage of the last snowy days and go ice skating with your loved ones at the following Muskoka trails.
