Steve Farm Nature Area at Lovell Creek
The 96-acre Steve Farm Nature Area at Lovell Creek is home to an extensive wetland ecosystem, numerous beaver dams, and upland forest habitats available for public enjoyment. The property is located south of Dollar Bay along Upper Point Mills Road and is dominated by the wetlands that make up the headwaters of Lovell Creek. Topography is variable, with lobes of higher forested ground providing vistas of the lower lying lands along the creek. Fens, bogs, marshes, cedar swamps, and open beaver ponds offer a variety of habitats for dozens of wildlife species. The creek, ponds, and wetlands are surrounded by mixed forests including pockets of hemlock and white pine that have not been logged in many decades.
The property is open to the public for non-motorized recreational use, including hiking, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, and mountain biking along the rough woods roads found on the property. A trailhead with roadside parking can be found on Upper Point Mills Road.

Turn right to stay on Upper Point Mills Road. After 0.4 miles, turn right at the fork. The trailhead sign will be on the right after another 0.4 miles.
