Walking along the Beaver Boardwalk took us through different vegetation and treed areas. Unfortunately we didn't see any beavers but seeing the dams they build was interesting. We saw families with children walking around and I'm sure it's a great way to teach them about...More

If you want to see beavers, or just want a pleasant walk through local ponds, this is the place to go. The boardwalks are very well done and the viewing tower provides a great overview of the area. Highly recommended.

We walked around and were surprised at how many other people were walking in the area. We got a few geocaches and a few big bites and had a great time. We highly recommend that you bring bug spray. This is a dog off leash...More

We went to visit when the sun was setting. We saw beavers and a weasel which was very nice. Boardwalk was good to use. Just some mosquitos weren't nice..

A great little nook/cranny off to the side of everything else in Hinton (nevermind Jasper). Neat but not life-changingly-amazing - Good to do if you've got lots of time in the area and looking to fill it out

What a beautiful walk for our first evening in Hinton. Great views for a quiet and peaceful spot. The mixture of boardwalk and pathways was very nice. Parking is very limited but you can park on the Main Street.

We were a group of 10 travelling through Hinton, at a loose end, when we chanced upon this place. It was a drizzly wet Morning, so everything looked perfect for spotting beavers. The place looks realistic beaver habitat but despite spending over an hour and...More

A lovely and peaceful area, filled with wildlife and of course, beavers! We visited in mid June 2017 and set ourselves up at one of the numerous lookouts an hour or so before sunset and watched a beautiful sunset and quite a few active beavers...More

Early morning is nice on the boardwalk and you can spend as little as 15 minutes to a few hours exploring the area.
