Welcome to Hinton!
Discover Hinton® - Hinton is the gateway to Jasper National Park in the Alberta Rockies and is located approximately 280 km (174 mi) west of Edmonton. As well as being a service and supply town for the mountain resorts, Hinton has developed its own tourism industry and is known for offering access to a multitude of recreational opportunities. In summer, visitors to Hinton can enjoy endless ATV trails or explore the lush Alberta wilderness on a hike or trail ride in the Brule Sand Dunes. Visitors can also head to Miette Hot Springs and soak up the fresh mountain air while relaxing amidst the warmest waters in the Canadian Rockies, which usually hover around 40°C (104ºF). In winter, the adventure of choice is snowmobiling, but other activities are also available, including dogsledding and cross-country skiing. Experience the thrill of stock races, demolition derbies and more at the Yellowhead Raceway, located just southwest of the city limits.
Come see the towering cliffs, meadering streams and sunken sinkholes of this impressive canyon, located west of Hinton near Brule.
