Three Sisters

Sea stacks, frozen in time by Kluscap, remnants of lava flows and magma intrusions from deep within the Earth underscore the wilderness of Cape Chignecto. Mi’kmaw legend tells another story of three mischievous sisters, turned to stone. Best experienced by sea kayak, a visit here
is one of the great outdoor experiences in the Aspiring Geopark.

Geological Formation: Fountain Lake Group
Age: Devonian-Carboniferous (circa 360-320 million years)
Directions: The best way to experience the Three Sisters is by a sea kayaking expedition from Spicer Cove. To view them from land, continue past the bridge at Spicer Cove turning right towards Eatonville day use park (a well maintained trail system) of Cape Chignecto Provincial Park. From the parking area, hike the trail, bearing at the trail junction.

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.
