The rocks at this site are exposed along a road cut on the eastern side of Pennsylvania 61, 0.3 to 0.5 mi (0.4 to 0.8 km) south of Pottsville, Pennsylvania (Fig. 1), on the southern margin of the Southern Anthracite field where the Schuylkill River has cut a deep gap in Sharp Mountain. Parking is available at several places, but it is advantageous to begin at the southern end of the outcrop and walk up section.
