Toftum Bjerge is an area of National Geological Interest (NGI 74) and the entire area is protected nature. Parts of the area have been preserved. Some of the beach sections are Natura 2000 bird habitat and protection areas. The locality has good facilities for visitors in the form of parking places, paths, tables and benches as well as steps down to the beach. The area is well suited for geological communication because of its accessibility, and Struer municipality and other organizations regularly hold geological trips here. There are excellent views from the top of the cliff that is commonly visited by tourists. In the middle of the 20th century a group of local artists, the so-called “Toftum artists”, were inspired by the impressive and dramatic nature here.
Interesting elements of the landscape along the cliff are several marked erosional gullies (Fig. 1-4). These were originally formed by large landslips but have become the course for running water (seepage of groundwater or drainage) that has eroded deep into the soft sediments. This kind of landscape is unique in the geopark and is seldom developed in low-lying Northwest Europe. The layers in the cliff consist of till and meltwater deposits. The oldest deposits in the cliff occur at Fjaltring where meltwater clay has been referred to the Elsterian glaciation. Equivalent deposits are found at several other localities in the geopark (e.g. Odby, Toftum). Between Trans and Ferring there are three different tills: lower, middle and upper.
