The site of the Čikola Canyon was protected in 1965. The Čikola River is the largest tributary of the Krka River. It springs near the village Čavoglava, flows through the town of Drniš and drains into the Krka River near Torak Lake.

The section of the Čikola River protected as a significant landscape flows from the Town of Drniš to approximately 1 km downstream of the new bridge for Miljevci across the river.

This area stands out due to the very deep canyon which is an extraordinary geomorphological phenomenon, and the locality is exceptionally important as a hydrological phenomenon in the karst landscape. The canyon is up to 170 m deep in places.
