Tucked among the Laurentian mountains deep in the Lanaudière region's village of Saint-Donat is a forest skating path that takes visitors on a short journey through a winter wonderland.

The 1.3-kilometre path through the Parc des Pionniers even lights up at night, according to the regional tourism website.

Visitors will also find an outdoor fireplace and picnic tables, which Tourisme Lanaudière says have been set up to facilitate social distancing.

But the best part: the site is free to visit.

However, equipment rentals are not available for the 2020-2021 season.

There are other activities for skating skeptics in the Parc des Pionniers, too. 

The municipal tourism site indicates there are five cross-country ski trails plus a 3.3-kilometre trail for snow-shoeing.

For all activities, the park has published public health guidelines online

As of the time of writing, non-essential travel between regions is not recommended, according to the government.
