On the easternmost end of the area sits Abandoned Mine No. 3, which leads to Desolation Point. On the western side of the region lies the entrance to Coastal Highway. A frozen coastline curves along the south side of the road.
This transition zone has five locations to discover, including the connector mine (named "No. 3 Coal Mine") with Desolation Point. Besides the mine, the only interior location is the basement of the Abandoned Harris Home.
A couple of wolves patrol this zone (three in Stalker mode); because the region is so compact, it can be difficult to bypass predators without taking extra caution. Additionally, a couple of rabbits may be found around this area, as can one or two deer carcasses.
There is also a relatively large amount of fuel and medicinal resources scattered about, as well as two vehicles and a shallow cave.
