McGeachie Conservation Area
By Crowe Valley Conservation Authority

McGeachie Conservation Area is located in Hastings County on beautiful Steenburg Lake and has 358 acres of land. This land was donated by Jack and Ethel McGeachie in 1994. McGeachie Conservation Area has many unmarked walking trails throughout the property. The property has a creek, beaver ponds, wildlife and acres of wetlands. Also located on the property is the original homestead that was built nearly 150 years ago. The homestead is now rented out to the public for a vacation cottage. This unique cottage has all the conveniences of home.

Directions: From Hwy 7 and Hwy 62, follow Hwy 62 north for approximately 40 kilometres, until you reach the North Steenburg Lake Road, turn left. Approximately 2.5 kilometres down this road, just past the public beach, you'll find the McGeachie Conservation Area on the right. Travel approximately 1 more kilometre and you'll find the entrance to the trails, also on the right hand side.
