We walked through here in April, so there wasn't a lot of wildlife, but was still a beautiful walk. I think we will go back in the summer. There were huge beaver huts and a dam. There are little forts overlooking the area. All the walkways are wood boardwalks. I think you would see a lot of wildlife in there... More

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!
