Terrain descriptionThe area is very flat in the East and falls slightly towards the West. The competition area is mainly conifer plantation. A high number of objects are present in the Western part, where deciduous trees change frequently with conifers. From the 18th century till 1920 slate was extracted in open-cast and underground mining in this area. There has also been a search for gold along the Rechterbach and its tributaries. Remaining traces of these activities are hillocks, pits and quarries that often serve as control points.
