From a geologic standpoint, these geomorphologic units belong into a flysch mountain range, built on alternating bases of sandstone and claystone.

Water accumulation is typical, in the period from December to February, with the year’s highest flowage in the month of March and lowest in the month of September. The average annual flowage of the Laborec River in Humenne is 10 m3 per second. The cadastral border runs along with the river Laborec to East, and then it continues around the stone-pit in Jasenovo and through the north part of Sokol, continuing through the valley of Ptava creak, braking near the ground elevation of Humenne in sharp break toward the north. Then it continues over the Čarnuška habitat, crossing the state road, railway road and confluence of the rivers Laborec and Circha and runs over the valley of Hubková, when turns to the west around the ground elevation of Petočová. From the habitat Vyšná Hubková, it leads near-by the Humensky creek to south, under the Hola hora mountain it changes its direction sharply to the west and behind the creek Lieskovec, it takes comparatively fluent south-west direction towards the Brekvska gate. The whole cadastre is enclosed by a flowline of state road and near-by river Laborec.
