In the aftermath of the volcano activity a maar lake developed in the depression. From the lake deposits numerous fossil finds are known, which document this emergence in the Lower to Middle Miocene. Today the Randecker Maar is drained by the Zipfelbach, which feeds 20 springs. The dry maar has a diameter of about 1.2 km.
The Randecker Maar is a popular tourist destination on the southeastern outskirts of Ochsenwang. The road leading from Hepsisau to Schopfloch crosses the area, which was declared a nature reserve in 1971.
