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.

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.

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
