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.

Age: Devonian-Carboniferous (circa 360-320 million years)
Access: By Kayak, or from Cape Chignecto Provincial Park trail – visible from the lookoff above.
