The Beaver Boardwalk is a must see for anyone visiting the area. Plan your visit for early morning or dusk to be sure to see beavers - June through September. If you are lucky, your dusk visit will coincide with the Wednesday evening live music from the local fiddle group, Bow Geste, who play for an hour on warm Wednesdays in the summer, usually starting around 7 pm. The beavers always appear during when music is being played! You will also see belted kingfishers, several kinds of ducks, and occasionally, a Baltimore oreole.

Such a fantastic idea to build a walking path in and around a beaver habitat. Easy to walk and nice scenery. A treat for all ages to go and visit.

Although it was a cool morning, we took an easy stroll around the lake before hitting the road to Jasper and beyond. An excellent effort by volunteers over the years.

This was so interesting - a very nice walk (beautiful country), saw half-chewed tree, enjoyed it immensely - very easy to manoever the trail. Great place to have a picnic.

While spending an afternoon in Hinton, I asked the hotel front desk for Hinton attractions worth visiting. She recommended the Beaver Boardwalk. It was definitely a site worth seeing. It's a large pond with a beaver lodge in the middle of it and viewing spots scattered around the edge from which to watch the lodge and pond. Although the beavers weren't doing anything at the time I was there, they are, on occasion, visible to sightseers.
