Including the buffer zone, this site with its 350ha is one of the largest small-scale reserves within the Bile Karpaty (White Carpathians) Protected Landscape Area.

The hay from the species-rich meadows used to be stored in traditional haylofts, some of which can still be seen along the road from the village of Javornik to the settlement of Suchovske mlyny.
