If you happen to visit the Overlander Lodge on a Saturday afternoon don’t miss a stop at the nearby Jasper East Gate cabins. You’ll find the General Store and weekly artisan market, which carries local crafts and artwork, fresh vegetables and specialty game meats. Michelle was quick to select some tasty jam and fresh veggies. If time allows sneak by the Folding Mountain Brewery on the same property for a locally brewed pint.
Rounding out our visit and the top requested destination at the visitor centre, our trio arrived at Beaver Boardwalk. The boardwalk and trails work through a network around Maxwell Lake and its marshes right in Hinton’s town limits. The name Beaver is given with good reason, because the boardwalks work their way through multiple beaver dams. I can see just how relaxed Roy and Michelle were as they strolled the boardwalk that night, a nice way to wrap up a busy day and weekend of adventure in Hinton.
