This is a lovely oasis in the heart of Hinton. It's very well maintained and offers beautiful views. Although we didn't see any beavers, we did meet a lot of dogs.

If you're in Hinton you just have to fo this walk as soon as we stepped onto the boardwalk we saw beavers swimming around just doing their thing it was the cutest thing ever. Go in the evening just before it gets dark

Really impressed with the Beaver Boardwalk, well maintained and pleasant boardwalk through the marsh. Just wish we had more time to explore the trails and watch the beavers longer.

This is a nice little nature walk for getting outside in Hinton. Some of the boardwalk is a bit run down. We had trouble finding it because two streets have a very similar name. Keep going up to the second one. That thing you see...More

We went here, really just to pass sometime in the afternoon as for some reason I was just thinking it would be a short walk around the beaver lodges, but anyway it was a lot bigger and nicer than I expected. We unfortunately didn't get...More

The lady at the travel information desk in downtown Hinton suggested we drive up to the beaver boardwalk from 7 to 9 PM to see the beavers. The place is a park, with a boardwalk around a wetland with rushes and grasses. The stream that...More

A nice and very original spot for a walk around a wetland where some beavers have built their home. It was a very rainy day but we were able to see some beavers in site

This was one of the unexpected highlights of our trip, even with all the fantastic scenery of the well-known national parks - - Banff, Lake Louise, Yoho, Icefields & Jasper. We watched the beavers working steadily before sunset and also at sunrise the next day...More

Hello, we are stopping in hinton around 7/8am at the end of June and would love to catch this treat of a trail. Can you let me know how long the trail is? How much time would it take to see some of the really beautiful areas? We would have about an hour available to us.

Early morning is nice on the boardwalk and you can spend as little as 15 minutes to a few hours exploring the area.
What time of the day are you most likely to see the Beavers at work ? Thanks Kerry

Usually in the early morning or early evening.
Hi, We are coming to Hinton tomorrow ( Sunday 28th June '15) and really keen to see the Beaver boardwalk area. Your fame has travelled, we are Australians and have the surname "Beaver, so especially relevant for us. May I please ask what time of the day are you most likely to actually see the Beavers ? We are cycling from Edson, so hope to be there about 1pm, then leaving the next morning ( early) to cycle to Jasper. We shall try and time our visit to the Beaver Boardwalk to suit the Beavers (the animals that is !) With many thanks Ross Beaver.
