This unusual park near Atlanta was created to protect a 100-acre granite monadnock (mountain) often compared to Stone Mountain and Arabia Mountain. Minimally developed, Panola Mountain shelters rare plants of the Piedmont region. Hikers may explore the parks watershed and granite outcrop on their own, or they may join park staff for guided hikes onto the restricted-access mountain. Children especially enjoy the interpretive center with live exhibits, including bees, bats, snakes and turtles. Due to its delicate ecological features, Panola Mountain was designated a National Natural Landmark, and pets and bicycles are not allowed on trails.
