Stabbtjärnbäcken is a small reserve around a verdant gully. Thick-growth and old aspen, spruce and willow are dispersed in the area. Here you find plenty of dead wood and many valuable fungi and plants. The area is 0.3 square kilometres in size.
The nature reserve lies in Boden Municipality, about 5.5 kilometres southeast of Harads, on the south side of the Lule river. The road passes through the reserve which lies at Åminne, about 7 kilometres south of Bodträskfors.
