The Five Islands
that lend themselves to the name of the community and Provincial Park form one of the iconic sites of the aspiring geopark. Legend holds that Kluscap, annoyed at mischievous Beaver, flung huge sods of Earth his way, forming the chain of islands: Moose, Diamond, Long, Egg and Pinnacle. Geologists see a story no less dramatic: a line of basalt in the Fundy rift valley, formed by outpouring of lava some 200 million years ago as Pangea ripped asunder
Age: Late Triassic-Early Jurassic (circa 200 million years)
