Surficial Geology of the Bull Run Mountain Natural Area
Surficial units, or deposits, are unconsolidated deposits of rock particles overlying the bedrock. Alluvium and glacial till are examples of surficial deposits. Glacial till is not a component of the area's surficial deposits because the effects of the glaciers did not reach this far south.
The Surficial units are:
Qcf - Holocene and late Pleistocene - (10,000 years and older) Fine grain debris on outer slope of Bull Run Mountain
Qc - Holocene and late Pleistocene - Coarse boulders of quartzite, greenstone, and debris in mountain slopes and hollows
