Hinton provides the community with a wealth of parks and playgrounds. The town itself is linked together by urban forest corridors and multipurpose trails for public enjoyment. Our local parks are also environmental havens, allowing the community to coexist with the natural world of the beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills.
There are a variety of trails around the Hinton townsite and surrounding forest. Download our trail map (PDF).
A favourite area among locals and visitors is the Beaver Boardwalk. The three-kilometre long boardwalk (map (PDF)) provides fantastic bird and animal viewing opportunities. Learn more about the Beaver Boardwalk.
There are designated on-leash and off-leash trails around town (view PDF map here). As per the Town of Hinton Animal Control Bylaw, whether in an on- or off-leash area, owners of dogs must be in control of their dog at all times.
