CONSERVATION AREAS

STEPHEN'S GULCH

DISCOVER THE PROVINCIALLY SIGNIFICANT SOPER VALLEY AREA

Notice

THIS IS A PARAGRAPH

Deciduous and coniferous forest, and swamp with seeps and springs, and beautiful spring ephemerals.

Located north of Bowmanville, Stephen's Gulch Conservation Area protects a large area of deciduous forest and coniferous forest/swamp that help maintain both water quantity (through seeps and springs) and water temperature along a significant section of Soper Creek. Stephen's Gulch Conservation Area also includes a portion of the provincially significant Soper Valley Area of Natural and Scientific Interest.  Visitors will enjoy the 3 km looped trail through the forest and valleyland and the spring ephemerals that create a carpet of colour at Stephen’s Gulch Conservation Area.

Now open year round.

 

Have your cameras and phones ready for photos and videos as you never know what you might see.
