The Pretzel is Hinton’s newest outdoor skating track. It is a 600-metre ice track nestled among the trees in the Hinton Campground, located next to the playground at the Hinton Centre on Switzer Drive.
Here is some important information about the Pretzel:
Open as long as weather conditions allow
Free to use
Area is for skating only; please do not walk on the track
Picnic tables are available; users are requested to bring own hand sanitizer
No washrooms are available
No pets are permitted; this restriction preserves skate track conditions and user safety
Use at your own risk to self and equipment - tree debris and pebbles could be on the track
Please wait after fresh snowfalls until the snow is cleared and after new floods (water/soft ice) to use
Maintenance in this area is a lower priority than sidewalk and other snow clearing needs
Please be patient after snowfalls and new floods so that the Pretzel surface is not compromised
Users are asked to park in the playground parking lot
Please do not block the campground entry way
Come and check out this magical experience!
Don't forget - in addition to the Pretzel, there are other outdoor skating opportunities including Town-maintained outdoor rinks at Erith Park, Kinsmen Park, and Mary Reimer Park.
