Map

Map: ISOM standard, scale 1:10 000, contour interval 5.0 m, mapped in 2016.

Terrain Description

Kõrvemaa is a wilderness area, dominated by glacial landforms, coniferous forests and extensive bogs. The terrain offers good variability in relief forms with interesting micro relief areas. Biggest height difference on one slope is approximately 20m. Larger flat man made holes are marked with ISOM 2007 symbol 115. There are a lot of paths, some bigger roads and Kõrvemaa ski trails. Additionally, quite many trenches and trench lines have remained on the terrain from the use of this area as a military training ground.

Runnability on the terrain varies a lot, however fast pine or spruce forests dominate. There are many fallen trees due to wind and snowfall. ISOM 2007 symbols 407 and 408 are used in some areas where visibility is good, but runnability is limited due to fallen trees. Many rides in forest have a lot of undergrowth and are difficult to notice. These rides are not marked on the map.

Marshes have good visibility, but due to high bushes and soft terrain their runnability is average. Water levels are low during this season however if the summer has been very rainy marshes can be wet. Bogs have bad and very bad runnability. Larger ditches in bog areas have soft muddy ditch banks and are difficult to cross at times. The stream which passes the map is flooded due to beaver activity. It is recommended to cross the stream using bridges and crossings.
