Winnipeg Forks Skating Trail Superb

I checked out the skating trail today as the weather was very agreeable. Warmer temps allowed a skate without having to wear astronaut-like clothing. The trail is well groomed and the ice was smooth as glass. For a Tuesday afternoon there was a surprisingly large turnout.

The trail isn’t as long as past years. But it does cover areas of the two rivers, Red and Assiniboine. It has been a few years since the Assiniboine River segment has been open, strong currents and mild weather the cause. There is also a couple hockey rinks right at the Forks harbor.

Get to see graffiti otherwise hidden from the public.
