The Massanutten sandstone is a Silurian-aged passive margin deposit that is correlative to the Tuscarora Formation of the western Valley & Ridge province. A bed is exposed here in a subvertical orientation along the Woodstock Tower Road, near its summit. Perspective is looking across strike to the west-northwest. Trace fossils (Arthrophycus?) may be observed in many orientations within the bedding plane.

Structural orientation (right-hand rule) of bedding: 037°, 84°
