This Provincial Park is well known for its spectacular winter sport features, often called the best-kept secret in Ontario! The most famous (and fun!) winter pastime is skating on the spectacular 1.3 km outdoor ice trail. If skating isn’t your thing, there is also cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter tubing. Yes, tubing; that means sliding down a snowy hill on a giant, rubber, inflatable inner-tube. In the summer, you can spend your time learning to mountain bike down the park trails, or just relaxing on the three sand beaches that line Arrowhead lake. The two lakes, Arrowhead and Mayflower, are great for canoeing and exploring the shorelines and views of this beautiful park. On land there are nearly 15 km of hiking trails that will lead you through an ecological, geological, and historical voyage. Along these trails, you will see part of the ancient shoreline of the glacial Lake Algonquin, and a beautiful example of a rugged Canadian Shield waterfall, Stubbs Falls. There are also unique heritage sites along these trails, including old homesteads dating from the 1870’s. Arrowhead Provincial Park is an amazing place to visit all year round, and provides vital protection for provincially significant natural, cultural, and recreational environments.
