If you want to enjoy a wonderful walk just min's from downtown Hinton you need to visit this place. As you walk around on the boardwalk you will see the large Beaver damn's and you can see the family of Beavers later in the day.

We were recommended the beaver board walk by the staff at our accommodation (Jasper Gates, just outside of Hinton). Turns out it was an amazing thing to see - 3 or 4 beavers and a mink, all moving logs or swimming in the river for...More
