Zaboda is a small cone-shaped hill that rises in the Cerová Uplands above the village of Hájnačka. The local landmark, the Zaboda Hill, is the residue of the lava flow that has been poured out of the Ostrá skala (Sharp Rock) volcano towards the east. The edges of Zaboda consist of steep rocky slopes with thick basalt columns, as well as crevice cavities.

The hill is ideal for an unpretentious half-day hike in a volcanic relief environment. Do not expect great views from the top, they will come from nearby plateau of Planina pod Zabodou. The territory of the top part of Zaboda is declared a natural monument with the highest level of protection.

As the ascent to this hill is neither difficult nor long, we recommend exploring the surroundings. Certainly interesting is Ragáč Hill, or the ruins of Hajnáčka Castle. There are marked hiking trails leading from the villages of Hajnáčka (approx. 3km) and Gemerská Dechtáre (approx. 6 km) straight to the Zaboda Hill.
