Fact you maybe didn´t know about the ice-skating trail:
to get the trail in good shape and keep it open when it´s snowing takes quite a time and efforts. When the ice of the lake is strong enough can the freezing of the trail begin. Water is carried on the ice surface and once it freezes over comes another water surface on it. Repeating this a couple of times ensures that the trail is in good shape. But please note, there still might be cracks on the ice because of natural movement of the lake ice.

Please note, that the ice-skating trail is primarily intended to ice-skating. To keep the trail in good condition for all skaters, please do not brake or make any holes or cracks on the ice. Because of safety of the other people on the ice-skating trail or near it dogs are not allowed to run free.
