Unfortunately when we were there the beaver dam was breached to a couple of ponds were draining. We did see one beaver. The walk itself was quite nice and easy and passes through several different wetland habitats.

Hello, we are stopping in hinton around 7/8am at the end of June and would love to catch this treat of a trail. Can you let me know how long the trail is? How much time would it take to see some of the really beautiful areas? We would have about an hour available to us.

Early morning is nice on the boardwalk and you can spend as little as 15 minutes to a few hours exploring the area.
What time of the day are you most likely to see the Beavers at work ? Thanks Kerry
