There is a 1.3km (or about 1 mile) trail in Canada that allows you to ice skate through a provincial park wood.
The Arrowhead Provincial Park Ice Skating Trail opens this month and is open for the season, weather permitting, through March.
Located in Huntsville, ON, the park with this unique skating trail is about 7.5 hours from the Albany, NY area.

Admission is CA$17 per vehicle. Skate rentals are CA$10 and CA$5 for skate sharpening. Hours vary but there are some scheduled nights that will allow skating by torchlight.
