Ontario's parks are prime destinations for winter adventures. From the scenic, snow-covered cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula to the epic forest ice-skating trail at Arrowhead, there's something in the province for everyone to enjoy during the winter months.
Of the latter, there's another attraction at Arrowhead Provincial Park that not many people know of. Along with its ice-skating trail is an unique downhill snowtubing trail that cuts through a portion of the Muskoka forest. The hill is actually a campground road that gets covered in layers of snow every winter, transforming it into the perfect slope for snow tubing.
The park staff use a ski trail groomer to smoothen out the hill, and also rent out tubes for guests to use free of charge. Nearby, heated cabins are available as alternative roofed accommodations for people looking to spend a winter weekend at the park. Each cabin comes with beds, a kitchenette with small appliances, and even a barbecue on the porch.
This year, the park's operating dates are from Dec. 8, 2017 to Mar. 25, 2018. Winter activities are always weather dependent, so you'll have to check park conditions before you head out. Live updates are given on the park's official Twitter account, as well as through their automated telephone service (705-789-5105).
