Will go back with a better camera next time. Didn’t see a beaver but enjoyed watching the Mallard couple going about their day.

Such a wonderful asset to Hinton, and seeing the busy beavers is an amazing treat! The trails are exceptional for walking with options for off and on leash spots for your well behaved dog.

Even with the boardwalk full of snow it is still a gorgeous place to take the family for a walk. Peaceful and relaxing. Just don't try to bring a stroller during the winter; it's best to carry your littles!

On a cold, frosty winter day this is a beautiful place to walk. The pond had a skating rink on it, and there were families out skating and playing hockey. I look forward to going back in the summer and exploring the extensive trail system.

Tons of trails, easy walks, and beaver sightings almost guaranteed as long as you go around dusk. We've gone a handful of times and seen beavers every time, including adults and baby beavers.

This is the place to walk in Hinton. The boardwalk area itself is very pretty for a stroll and for enjoying an afternoon. The beaver boardwalk also connects to many trails through Hinton. The trails are gravel and it’s a wonderful place to get your...More

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