Red River Mutual Trail is an ice skating trail over Red River and Assiniboine River. It is mentioned in the Guinness World Records as the world's longest naturally-frozen trail for skating. Starting from The Forks, at the confluence of the two rivers, the trail meanders for miles and takes you to the doorstep of some of Winnipeg's most loved attractions. As the ice forms differently every winter, the trail differs markedly every year, and, hence, no two ice skating seasons here are the same. Besides skating, this trail is the site of activities like ice hockey, broomball, curling and cycling. Art competitions, winter festivals and charity events are also held here. The entire trail can be accessed for free but you need to pay extra for skate rentals. The trail is open every winter from sunrise to sunset.
