The hiking and cycling map "Der Südharz" shows the spa towns of Bad Lauterberg and Bad Sachsa in the centre. To the east are Herzberg and Pöhlde and to the south the northern headwaters of the Helme with Weißenborn-Lüderode. In the east are Walkenried, Ellrich, Zorge and Hohegeiß and centrally the forest area around the Oder dam is shown.
The reverse side of the map sheet connects to the front side in the east with Ellrich. In the centre are Niedersachswerfen, Neustadt / Harz, Ilfeld and Stolberg / Harz. The north is taken up by the forest area with popular destinations such as Netzkater, Poppenberg and Josefshöhe. In the south, part of Nordhausen and Uftrungen can be seen.
Hikes along the varied southern edge of the Harz Mountains from Herzberg to Stolberg are recommended. You can see the high mountains of the south-west Harz such as Großer Knollen, Ravensberg and Stöberhai. Of interest in the hilly southern foothills of the Harz are the unique karst landscape and hiking destinations to the castle ruins between Ilfeld and Stolberg.
Several signposted long-distance hiking trails lead through the southern Harz:
- Certified karst hiking trail from Herzberg to Uftrungen
- Baudensteig from Walkenried to over the Großer Knollen
- Since 2018, the Südharzer Dampfloksteig (South Harz Steam Locomotive Trail) has led along the narrow-gauge railway from Sophienhof to Nordhausen (shown as a line and symbol on the map).
