It's time to sharpen those skates because one of the city's most stunning rinks is about to open.

Toronto's Bentway Skate Trail is officially launching next week, and you can glide through a wintery paradise beneath the Gardiner Expressway.

The 220-metre figure-eight-shaped rink will be operating a little differently this year.

In order to visit the ice trail, you must preregister on Eventbrite, starting December 12 at 10 a.m., as there is limited capacity.

There won't be skate rentals available, so be sure to bring your own, as well as a mask and ID.

Pack some snacks for your adventure as well, as the drink and snack bar will not be running.

A full list of rules and regulations is available on the website.

The trail is completely free to visit, but a $5 donation is suggested, which will go towards helping those in poverty.

Drift along the city's unique ice trail this winter for a magical outdoor adventure.
