The conservationists have been pursuing pastoral farming on the site, grazing animals such as the yak, which is conductive to preserving the steppe character of this place. However, today, any day-tripper who chooses to take the restored trail to the hill-top may help the local conservationists simply by scaling the hill by foot (as certain plant species prefer this way of keeping the competition at bay).
As a site of nature, Pařezov Hill is composed of dry heaths, in which a number of protected plant species (green-winged orchid, lesser butterfly orchid, common restharrow, knotted clover), as well as insect species (scarce swallowtail, green tiger beetle, darkling beetle, solitary bees, pennisetia bohemica (a clearwing moth endemic to the Czech Republic) or bumblebees) have been observed. As habitats, this type of forest-free site is endangered in the Czech Republic, primarily due to the absence of long-term care.
Those who scale Pařezov Hill are rewarded with a gorgeous view of the Chod region, comprising the main ridge of the Upper Palatine Forest, the Hoher Bogen mountain ridge in Bavaria, the highest summits of the Bohemian Forest, and the Kunisch mountains (or "Royal Forest"), with the castle ruins Rýzmberk and Nový Herštýn. The trail is approx. 850 m long and perfectly suited even for families with children or senior citizens. At the beginning and the end of the trail, info panels provide visitors with a more detailed description of the site. As a bonus, visitors may be lucky enough to encounter some of the yaks grazing along the trail.
