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.

Excellently maintained and informative boardwalk. Seeing the beaver lodge was fantastic but unfortunately didn't see any beaver. Better luck next time, hopefully

Quite a few trails to explore. You can walk 5 minutes or an hour, depending on what you're up for. Great view of a marsh with the workings of beavers up close.
