Arrowhead Provincial Park is a popular winter destination for Ontario adventure seekers. It features more than 33 km of cross-country ski trails, a variety of hiking/snowshoeing trails as well as a skating rink and the famous skating trail. There are also two warm-up shelters and an open fire pit at the top of the tubing hill!
