Berwick Township - This rock of Triassic age is found in a roadcut along Pa. Rte. 194 at the intersection with Maple Grove Road south of Abbottstown. Notice how angular the rock fragments are? Their shape tells a geologist that the fragments were not transported far in water. The fragments are reddish sandstone, quartzite and rarely a piece of limestone. With angular fragments, the rock is termed a breccia.
