Wardija Ridge Cart Ruts Malta (Busewdien Cart Tracks) – map, location and photographs guide to these very pleasant located Cart Ruts in Malta – high up on top of a small rolling hill on the Wardija Ridge. If you walk or hike across Malta and choose to do your walking along the Wardija Ridge then you will pass beside these Cart Ruts at Busewdien, perhaps without noticing them.
Very wide and defined Cart Ruts with some unusual associated geology including Cart Ridges, Cart Triangles and Grey Rock. These Cart Tracks are located beside Triq Busewdien (Busewdien Road) between St Paul’s Bay and Zebbieh (Skorba Temples). The road is a very scenic drive across Wardija Ridge and is an alternative route towards Golden Bay.
Wardija Ridge Cart Ruts Malta (Busewdien Cart Tracks)
Cart Ruts (Cart Tracks)
The views of the Maltese countryside are worth the drive alone. They include the strangely isolated Il-Qolla that looks river eroded but with no river around it. The Cart Ruts are found beside the road and just in the fields.
These Cart Ruts are some of the widest you will see and, although short, perhaps the straightest. Other Cart Ruts features in the area are Cart Ridges, outstanding Grey Rock outcrops and a solid Cart Triangle.
Wardija Ridge Malta Cart Ruts and Cart Ridges
Cart Ruts Ridges are geological features associated with Cart Ruts areas. These strange raised lines do not appear to be the result of fault or fold lines.
Busewdien Cart Tracks – Cart Triangles
Cart Ruts Triangles are limestone rock features found at Cart Rut sites. They are normally lines but this one is a solid triangle shape. The triangles are also found in other areas where there are no Cart Ruts like Manikata and Pembroke Hill.
Busewdien Cart Ruts Malta – Outstanding Grey Rock
Around the Cart Tracks is the special Grey Rock that you find around other Cart Ruts. This bright light grey limestone rock literally stands out in every location. What causes it to be that colour and why does it form such outcrops around the Cart Ruts?
On most of the Grey Rock you will find the same pattern that you do not see on other limestone rock in Malta. It looks like the pattern of a brain or a negative Lichtenberg Figure.
There is also some crazy “erosion” on the tops of some of the Grey Rock
Wardija Ridge Cart Ruts – Form guide
How are these strange geological features (Electroblemes) formed around the Cart Ruts? How were the Cart Ruts created? Does it have anything to do with the Electric Universe? For ideas, discussion and, maybe you providing the key idea, chat or look at the “form guide” in the forum.
What you think is important…but only if you say it.
Directions and location of Cart Ruts in Malta at Busewdien (Wardija Ridge)
Drive or walk along Triq Busewdien (Busewdien Road) between Zebbieh and near St Paul’s bay. You will travel along the Wardija Ridge, when you get to the area known as L-Argentier (sign post in the road related to this) there will be a road junction which is divided by a small diamond shape dirt island.
You can tell you are in an area of Cart Ruts as there are small rolling hill tops around it.
