While the winter season may not be the most anticipated time of the year in Canada, we find ways to reconnect with nature. One of the best ways to do this is by trekking to some of the most magical outdoor skating trails in Ontario. These skating trails have been transformed into icy wonderland paths, so it’s no wonder why these have become favourite destinations for families and friends who like to elevate their skating experience. 

Before reading along, visit our online store to learn more about our cannabis offerings, and pick up some products that will make your skating trail adventure even more uplifting. 

4 Enchanted Skating Trails in Ontario

In Ontario, there are a handful of outdoor skating trails that are specifically catered to those looking for an outdoorsy experience. Here are some of our favourites:

1. Escape the City on the Rideau Canal Skateway

What would this list of the best outdoor ice skating trails in Ontario be without including the Rideau Canal? This 7.8 kilometre natural ice rink opened January 14 and runs until February 28.

Whether you’re a commuter looking for an environmentally friendly way to get to work or are an Ottawa local trying to keep warm with a fun winter activity – look no further. This skating rink is perfect for a crisp weekend skate with your friends!

Stop by True North Cannabis Co.’s Ottawa location for some prime product recommendations before you hit the ice!

2.Enjoy Nature at Its Fullest with Colonel Samuel Smith Skating Trail

There are literally hundreds of outdoor skating trails in Ontario, but perhaps one of the most popular ones is the Colonel Samuel Smith Skating Trail in Etobicoke. This park is located along a stretch of wooded areas next to the Humber College Lakeshore Campus, where you can see a variety of trees, birds, plants, and other kinds of wildlife while you navigate through the network of paths.

If you’re in the Hamilton area and are heading up to the city to try out this ice skating trail, make sure to stock up on your essentials first

Location: 65 Colonel Samuel Smith Park Dr., Etobicoke 

3. An Escarpment Adventure at Blue Mountain Ice Skating Trail

If you’re looking for an accessible, yet complex, skating trail in Ontario that is equipped for your entire group of friends to experience, the Blue Mountain ice skating trail is it. Conveniently located in one of the best places to be in Ontario during the winter, Blue Mountain, you can easily spend the whole weekend here skiing, snowboarding, and of course, skating!

Enjoy spectacular views of the escarpment while you glide along the ice at the top of the mountains. Perfect for photo opportunities, this outdoor ice skating rink will be the backdrop to all your best winter memories.

Reconnect with nature responsibly and make sure to stock up on edibles, cold beverages, and pre-rolls before checking into your chalet at our Owen Sound location

Location: 201 Scenic Caves Road, The Blue Mountains

4. Get Lost in Arrowhead Provincial Park Skating Trail

If you’re looking for the feeling of gliding through an enchanted forest, then this is one of the skating trails in Ontario that you must visit. This 1.3 kilometre ice trail runs through Muskoka’s thick and dense forests, with “Fire and Ice” themed nights where you can ice skate with illuminated torches leading your path. It’s almost like a scene from a fairy tale movie, and the memories you create will surely last a lifetime. Take the whole family, or even your special someone, for an outdoor winter adventure like no other.

But first, visit our location in Huntsville!
