One of the many wild
and lesser known places awaiting discovery in the aspiring geopark is McGahey Brook, on the Fundy day hike trail of Cape Chignecto Provincial Park. The long descent to the shore and waterfalls at McGahey Brook takes the hiker to rocks of the early Carboniferous Period, twisted and folded by tectonic power of the Cobequid Fault system.
Geological Formation: Probable Horton Group
Age: Carboniferous (probably Mississippian: circa 340 million years)
Directions: From the Visitor Centre at Cape Chignecto Provincial park, West Advocate, follow the Fundy approximately 3 km to McGahey Brook.
