Noted geology along the Negro Mountain anticline. (8 miles) This section of the trail is an open-air geology classroom with marker posts along the length pointing out specific features. GR9 marks an exposed section of the Lower Kittanning coal seam. GR5 is the Wymps Gap fossil quarry with a Mississippian Period limestone bed associated brachiopod fossils. GR3 has "festooned crossbedding" which represents sand dunes just beneath the surface of an ancient shoreline. The DCNR trail guide is available at The TOPO! Overlay file included with this review contains data for the entire 30 miles of the Allegheny Highlands Trail from Confluence to Meyersdale and includes the track of the planned trail and road bypass route to Cumberland, Md.
