Ward Falls

The hand of the Cobequid Fault in shaping the landscape of the cliffs and land is perhaps nowhere more evident than in waterfalls tumbling across its fault scarp, which forms the southern margin of the Cobequid highlands. Wards Brook is one such falls, carved through steep walls of granite. The trail has been maintained through the stewardship of Harrison & Sons lumber mill and community volunteers.

Geological Formation: Various
Age: Devono-Carboniferous (350-320 Million years)
Directions: From Highway No. 2 at Crossroads, north of Parrsboro, travel west on Highway 209 for 7 km. The signed road to the trailhead is located approx. 100 m east of Diligent River, on the north side of the highway. Drive approx. 1 km to the parking area.

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.
