Excellent walk. We saw 5 beavers within 30 minutes. It was in the evening, only us, two people, and last but not least: we made as little noise as possible.

Lots of people walking their dogs. Saw a few beaver habitats, but no beavers. Parking is minimal. A little hard to find if you don’t know where you’re going thru the neighborhood.

Take a relaxing stroll along the many paths in the woods and along Maxwell lake. You may see a variety of birds and wildlife along the way. So peaceful.
