Visit Panola Mountain

This summer take a trip to Panola Mountain to enjoy the green scenery and wildlife. Pack a picnic and enjoy hiking, roller blading, biking, archery, boating and more. Before you head out, be sure to have your vehicle serviced at SouthTowne Motors or stop by our showroom to test drive that new vehicle you’ve been eyeing for your summer road trips.

Panola Mountain offers tons of activities and has many events for those of all ages. Let the kids play on the playground while you relax at a picnic spot, rent a boat, take an archery class, go geocaching, birding, learn how to climb a tree, walk the dog and more.

This park sits on a 100-acre granite outcrop that features a rare ecosystem. Take a ranger-led hike to learn about rare animals and plants or hike the many trails yourself. If you would rather take a ranger-led hike, you’ll need to make reservations ahead of time.

Panola Mountain is located in the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, which is one of only three in the state. The park is open from 7:00 a.m. until dusk and the nature center is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and closed on Wednesdays. It is $5 to park.

The park also features two miles of self-guided nature trails, 20 miles of paved trails and 3.5 miles of guided hiking trails. Bikers and joggers will enjoy the 25-mile paved Rockdale River and Arabia PATH trail.

Pick up an annual pass or pay by the day for the archery range, which is static and 3-D, rent an aquacycle, go paddling and more.
