Carrs Brook

Travel back to the ‘Dinosaur Era’. The rocks at Carrs Brook have yielded an important cross section of life in the Mesozoic Era, including fishes, whose descendants today find their way to traditional fishing weirs and to our table.

Geological Formation: Blomidon and Wolfville formations
Age: Late Triassic (circa 220 million years)
Directions: Where Highway 2 crosses Carrs Brook, take the road to the left (east) of the brook. Park, and head right (west), crossing the brook, to the coastal cliffs beyond. Be aware that parking may not be available during very high tides: consult tide tables!

What is a Geopark?

A Geopark is a designation that attracts tourists wishing to explore the connections between geology, local communities, culture, and nature. Geoparks are designed to promote tourism and celebrate a region’s uniqueness, and do not prohibit any land use.
