Several miles of boardwalk around and over beaver dams and lakes. We saw two busy beavers living up to their name, unconcerned about the people, surrounding condos, and dogs on the walks: swimming, pushing logs in the water, and nibbling bark. Originally was disappointed to find not motels in Jasper park, but the beaver boardwalk made the trip out of... More

An easy to access start to an amazing trail system. The boardwalk is over functioning wetlands and you will always see something unique. The adjoining trails provide hours of enjoyment and your dogs can run the trails (they have to be on leash on the boardwalk). Take the time; its free and worth a visit.

Excellent place to see, this is a attraction for all ages. The boardwalk is kilometres long and is a great walk to see nature at its best. You will see lots of beavers and how they live. Do not forget your bird book to mark all the differs birds.

I love the Beaver Boardwalk. With the choice of directions to go and whether you would like to stay near Maxwell Lake or delve a little deeper into the woods (easy walk with some mild uphill), you can see so many different types of marsh land scenes or a beaver dam. There are also resident beavers.

I spent 3 years visiting the boardwalk when I lived in Hinton. I went almost every other day. It's beautiful all year around. Dogs must be on leash on the boardwalk except the trails. To see the beavers eat, go around 6pm in the summer. It's a must to check this place out!

We went to the boardwalk in the afternoon and were very impressed, they have great extensive trails that go everywhere. Even if you do not see a beaver it is worth stopping as it is impressive to see the dam system they have built. We came back at 6 pm and we did see beavers then (as we were told... More

The Beaver Boardwalk is a wonderful place to take a walk. I am a local resident and go here often and the cougar in area signs are just cautionary because it is afterall the woods....never had a problem and we go much deeper into the trail systems than the boardwalk area.

Great place to visit . Go at dusk and be quiet and patient and you'll see the beavers at work! prepare to spend at least an hour there. There are various path ways and many photo opportunities.very close to town.

Nice place to take a walk on the boardwalks but we didn't see any beavers. We went after breakfast so maybe it was too late. Anyway, a nice walk close to town which was well signed and easy to find.
