Such a surprise! Absolutely loved the tranquility & scenery. Great place to take a leisurely walk with friends or family. You might catch a glimpse of a muskrat racing through the water or a beaver slapping his tail when startled. This is a beautiful piece of heaven that the community of Hinton should be very proud of. Our outing was... More

Really enjoyed the boardwalks and water. I also liked how they connected with other trails and especially enjoyed the beaver houses (including the obersvatuon decks). Only drawback was that they ended too soon. I will definitely be back next summer.

Beautiful wetland area with lagoons, reed-beds, criss-cross paths, board-walks, hides and look-outs. We found the attraction by chance and were rewarded with a peaceful evening stroll on two consecutive occasions. Didn't truly expect to see beavers but were rewarded both times and they were not camera-shy. A memorable wildlife encounter!

This is a lovely oasis in the heart of Hinton. It's very well maintained and offers beautiful views. Although we didn't see any beavers, we did meet a lot of dogs.

Really impressed with the Beaver Boardwalk, well maintained and pleasant boardwalk through the marsh. Just wish we had more time to explore the trails and watch the beavers longer.

This is a nice little nature walk for getting outside in Hinton. Some of the boardwalk is a bit run down. We had trouble finding it because two streets have a very similar name. Keep going up to the second one. That thing you see splashing around is probably a muskrat, not a beaver. There is fencing around many of... More
