Snowshoeing is a great way to get exercise outdoors and make use of Ontario's many trails no matter how deep the snow.

One note: Before heading out, check the destination park/facility for COVID restrictions. These change frequently and means that some parks that usually have rentals, for example, may not for winter 2020/21.
