Medieval drifting sand ridge.

The sub-areas of the Bedafse and Slabroekse Hills both have their name from a drifting sand ridge. The Bedafse Bergen is a forest area with a drifting sand ridge that originated in the Middle Ages and was planted with coniferous forest in the early 20th century. The drifting sand ridge with heights of more than 20 meters has been maintained, the wood that was planted was mainly used as mine wood. The drifting sand ridge in the Slabroekse Bergen sub-area is not as high and more overgrown, but with beautiful views of the adjacent heathland in various places. At the end of 2018 the grazing area in the Slabroekse Bergen was expanded further and exmoor ponies were set out.
