Stone hammer Geopark is a nice place to walk around and view the rock formations cause by erosion from the Saint John River. There are very nice lookouts to view Reversing Falls.

Further evidence of the presence of Pangea, some of the exposed rock sources from far South America while others source from Africa. You must know what you're looking at or have a guide to show you the difference. Good for rock hounds
Because lot of snow was melting a huge quantity of water was coming down. With powerful sound falling down.
We stumbled upon this park by mistake. Very interesting history, lovely setting, they even have a restaurant there, which I was surprised to learn is run by a non-profit society. If I lived in Saint John, I would go often.
I was pumped to go to Stonehammer Geopark - the office is at the museum. Driving all the way here I was told that there is no actual 'geopark' the 'geos' are everywhere including Rockwood Park. It's not an actual thing.
Access the fundy Drive at St. Martins, and don't let the folks in Sussex visitor info tell you there's no place to stay in St. martins.
While I recall geology in high school it really isn't all that captivating to me. keeps my interest for the time it take to read the information board. I could see a definite interest to those more geologically inclined. Park is clean and well kept...More
Nice photo of the cliff face explaining the geology and showing the geological features. Then the nice beach and rocks for collecting. There is great fast food near by. Great spot to spend an afternoon.
A definite must, especially for families. Lots to see and do, from the outdoors to museums and cultural things. Kayaking is the most unusual and a great fun transportation you can imagine for travelling back in geological prehistory.
Great geologic history, and also history of geology, all well explained in booklets, brochures and on information panels at some of the sites.
