breaks the shale sequence 75 feet below the top of the Eagle Ford at Arcadia Park. These beds, well exposed in cuts along the Dallas-Fort Worth highway at the western edge of the town, have a thickness of one foot. They consist of gray to brownish, brown-weathering limestone containing considerable clay, silt and fine sand, and bedded in units from a fraction of an inch to three inches thick. On the rough and, irregular surfaces of bedding are numerous fossils including small ammonites, pelecypods, fish teeth [Ptychodus], and worm (?) castings.  Other portions of the rock are made of calcareous shell fragments. The fossils are not uniformly distributed through the flags, however, and some layers appear to be barren, as Scott (1940, p. 312-313) has observed."

"  Flaggy material of the same character as that described above is exposed along the west side of Ledbetter Road about one mile south of Arcadia Park. The main flaggy layer is slightly over one foot thick, but for six inches above the top there are alternating layers of clay and impure lime-stone, the latter in units averaging a quarter of an inch thick. Other exposures of the flaggy layers may be seen along Mountain Lake pike near its intersection with Blue Cut road. Between the flaggy layers and the top of the formation is a thickness of 75 feet, mostly dark gray to black shale. These upper beds are well exposed in the railroad cut directly south of the Dallas-Fort Worth highway between Arcadia Park and Chalk Hill, in the embankments along the same highway at Chalk Hill, and in the quarry of the Trinity Portland Cement Co.
