The outcrop can be traced from the Hudson River valley westward along the southern rim of the Mohawk River valley, passing just south of Syracuse (Syracuse, New York), and along the northern heads of the major Finger Lakes to Buffalo, New York.

It is not distinct west of Windsor, but begins to become noticeable as a steep hill just northwest of Leamington (Leamington, Ontario), as it forms a low ridge escarpment along much of the Lake Erie shoreline.
