Lace up your skates, Ottawa: a new skating trail that winds its way through an old growth apple orchard is now open near Metcalfe, Ont., about 30 kilometres southeast of downtown Ottawa.
"It's untouched. It's natural. These trees have just grown on their own over the years," said owner Trevor Jamieson. "You don't know what's around the next corner."
The trail meanders through Jamieson's property at RiverOak Estates, leading skaters into his orchard and its snow-covered tree canopy.
Partially lit at night, the skateway includes a double figure-eight loop and a more extensive maze of trails.
