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.

I personally don't regard Hinton for much - it always stinks when I come through, and that's worth of almost 20 years of stink from the mill! HOWEVER - the BEAVER BOARDWAK shows a lot of time and love for the town from the volunteers who built it for the visitors' enjoyment! I try to visit it and the neighbouring... More

We were staying in a B & B near Hinton and were told of the Beaver Boardwalk, which we visited before having dinner in Hinton. We were lucky to see a beaver close up chewing on a log and a few others swimming to their Lodge. This area was privately funded by local businesses and is a pleasure to visit.

Easily accessible for people of all abilities. A great nature path, filled with wild flowers, birds, beavers, etc. Just be aware that it is a wild area with untamed animals (and dogs not on leashes). The gravel paths are often flooded due to rain or spring thaw. you can wander off into the woods and encounter Canadian wildlife such as... More

My wife and myself very much enjoyed the walk along the boardwalk. We observed countless birds and flowers. We hit a very nice early morning so this made the walk all the better. The boardwalk is kept in very good condition and the lake is left to nature. Parking is the only questionable aspect of this park(there really is very... More

A very interesting place hidden away, yet in the town centre. Well worth a visit, particularly early in the morning or late in the evening.
