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!

Yes, we here at the Cliffs of Fundy Geopark know that the top photo is actually a photo of picking raspberries (not blueberries), but thanks for the shout out from #GEOfood and #magmaunescogeopark in Norway. Also thanks to local photographer Betty Ann DeWitt for the amazing photo of berry picking. And a challenge to all you blueberry farmers out there to send us your blueberry photos to share. You can send them to us at beth.peterkin@fundygeopark.ca.#cliffsoffundy ... See MoreSee Less

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.
