A NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA
Check Last Minute Availability

Just 15 minutes from Atlanta is a recreational haven for all ages and interests.  Visitors can picnic while children work off energy on the playground.  The park  offers archery, boat rental, geocaching, orienteering, birding and tree-climbing programs.  A paved trail is open for biking, roller blading, jogging and dog-walking, while forested fitness trails are open for hiking and running.
 
Panola Mountain is a 100-acre granite outcrop similar to Stone Mountain, but smaller and much more pristine.  Park visitors will see the outcrop and its rare ecosystem just as Native Americans did centuries ago.  Reservations are required for ranger-led hikes that teach about the rare plants and animals found in this habitat.  
 
Panola Mountain State Park is the crown jewel of the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, one of only three National Heritage Areas in the state. The park’s unusual natural beauty and intriguing cultural changes are the basis for this special recognition. Over the years, this area has been home to early settlers, immigrant rock cutters, freed slaves and even Trappist monks. Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area is a partnership among the state of Georgia; DeKalb, Henry and Rockdale counties; the Monastery of the Holy Spirit; and numerous communities and public-private partners. Panola has also been designated a National Natural Landmark. Learn more at www.arabiaalliance.org.
