Caution Advised for Beaver Boardwalk Visitors Starting Thursday

Starting Thursday, April 5 2018, geotechnical evaluations will be taking place in the area of Maxwell Lake relating to testing soils and wetlands to determine the materials and design requirements to support the Beaver Boardwalk.

Currently, crews are scheduled to start on the Downstream Loop then move to the Beaver Pond Trail, which will likely take most of the day Thursday. They will then move on to the Upstream Loop, and attempt any test holes that can be accessed near the Lakeside Trail. 

Any visitors to the Boardwalk are asked to avoid areas where work is taking place wherever possible. The Town of Hinton also wishes to remind all visitors and residents that the Beaver Boardwalk is an on leash area, and as such, all dogs in the area are expected to be on leash and under the control of their owners.


Hinton's Beaver Boardwalk was built by the vision, and efforts, of dedicated community volunteers. With mixed material construction, and some uncertainty surrounding the depths of the footing, administration is carrying out a scope of work that will evaluate the design, environmental impacts, and geotechnical realities of the area so as to properly plan, long term, the future of this treasured attraction for Hinton and area.
