Stephen's Gulch Conservation Area

Stephen’s Gulch

About This Area

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.
