Mount Edward is the second highest elevation in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. Mount Edward is a monadnock, an erosional remnant of resistant ingenous rocks that remained after an ancient Mesozoic peneplain surface was uplifted in the Cenozoic to form a plateau. Erosion from glaciers, water, wind has eroded the mountains for hundreds of millions of years. The mountain consists of 400 million-year-old rhyolitic and basaltic volcanics. The underlying rocks of Mount Edward are part of the Gaspé Belt. This mountain is about 6 miles from Mount Carleton the New Brunswick Highlands highest peak.
