What a wonderful walk to do and the view is beautiful. We did not end up making right up to the beaver dams but saw them from a far. Even with out the Beavers I would highly suggest checking it out and being one with nature.

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 to spot any beavers but did see what we thought was a mink scamper by.... 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 runs through it is dammed by the beavers who can be seen swimming in the... 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 -- a beautiful lake and wetlands area, and so easy to access. If not for... More

We visited in an evening and had to wait over 30 minutes to see the Beavers, I think they came out around 6.30pm. We sat an quietly waited. One came out and stayed round the main damn near the viewing areas, and another swam past is up to the big lake. Later we saw 3 others also at the lake... More

My husband and I went around 7pm (middle of September) and were able to watch a beaver working away at his home. It was an experience that neither of us had had before. I have heard that Beaver sighting may be more difficult to come by in the middle of the day. The boardwalk is in a beautiful area and... More

Excellent walk when in Hinton. Highly recommend this walk to anyone and those of all physical abilities. Four foot wide wooden Boardwalk over natural wetlands.

If you want to see the beavers you need to visit at sunrise or sunset, otherwise this is just a pleasant walk.
