Western part of the Velence hills, 100-250 m above sea level.
There are three distinctive parts of teh terrain:
- Open and semi open areas, mainly with granite surface. Huge granite boulders, abandoned quarries and traces of a former military training area break this surface. Riding conditions perfect in rainy weather as well, although the very steep parts offer more difficult conditions.
- Forest area with a network of tracks, mostly perfect for riding, with some additional narrow nature trails. In higher areas the tracks run on the granite surface, while the lower tracks run on loamy soil.
- Towards Pákozd the area is an extended network of good quality gravel and surfaced roads amongst cottages, vineyards and fruit orchards, with many dead ends but minor vehicle traffic.
Maps are 1:15 000/5 m and 1:10 000/5 m, corrected according to IOF MTBO standards October 2015. through August 2017. No previous MTBO map is available from the area. The terrain was last used for foot-O 25 years ago. Size of the planned mapped area amounts to 16 km2.
