Just 15 minutes from Atlanta, Panola Mountain is a recreational haven for all ages and interests. Visitors can picnic while children work off energy on the playground. Anglers can bring their fishing poles to catch dinner at Alexander Lake. Panola Mountain State Park is one of the only state parks to offer archery programming (including a state of the art 3D practice range, for those with their own equipment), as well as "Canopy Adventure" tree climbing programs. Tree-climbing is great for families, youth organizations, corporate team-building excursions, and can accommodate any physical disability. The park also offers boat rental, geocaching, orienteering, birding and hiking. Georgia's PATH Foundation scenic Rockdale River Trail winds through the park and is ideal for biking, roller blading, jogging and dog-walking. Panola Mountain is a 100-acre granite outcrop similar to Stone Mountain, but smaller and much more pristine. Panola is special because it's never been quarried, and as a National Natural Landmark, has had limited human impact. Because of this, it has many incredible rare ecologic features. 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. What was the inspiration for starting this business? It started as a conservation park to protect the pristine ecosystem of the mountain. What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer? "We never knew all this was back here!" What?s your favorite part about your job? Helping visitors develop an enjoyment and respect for nature.

  • Hazard County Skate Park
    Crafted by the same wood wizards who built ramps at Woodward's renowned skateboarding camps, Hazard County Skate Park is chock full of ramps, rails, soapboxes, and sweet transitions to appease skaters of all ages and skill levels. Beginners can embark on a four-wheeled adventure, learning basic skills such as how to push properly, how to drop in, and how to perform a 900-degree spin by pressing up arrow while holding the B button. More advanced riders scoot closer to board mastery by focusing on kick flips, front 360 flips, the pop shove it, and various grinds and grabs. Private tutorials are offered any day of the week; simply call ahead to make an appointment. Social skaters may opt for two group classes, held Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. Classes are led by skate scientists Eli Williams and Shelton Halstead, who in addition to being talented teachers and avid McTwisters, also spend time singing "Defying Gravity" from the musical Wicked.
