The Gut Conservation Area
By Crowe Valley Conservation Authority

The Gut Conservation Area is located in the northern portion of the watershed. It is a 162 ha site located just east of Apsley. This Conservation Area features walking trials, a parking lot, a look out area and a stairway down to the gorge. The "Gut" is a large gorge that the Crowe River flows through for about 230 meters. The fissure that forms the gorge is over 30 meters high and varies from 5 to 10 metes in width. The gorge presents a breathtaking glimpse of this unique terrain.
