Exposures of marble in peraluminous Carrington's Pond Member (of Trap Falls Formation) schist which approaches granulite facies metamorphism in some areas. Small, simple pegmatites are abundant. Rocks are likely Ordovician in age. Horizons or schlieren of chemically altered volcanic ash can be seen in the marble. A metasomatically formed calc-silicate zone approximately 7cm thick borders the marble and schist.
Evidence of past small scale prospecting activity can be observed. The geology of this locality is similar to that of the Old Mine Park area in Trumbull, CT. Prospectors may have been looking for tungsten in the past.
Now a nature park with many outcrops that are great for teaching and studying regional geology. Unfortunately there is little trail maintenance. Public access.
