Panola Mountain State Park, 9 mi. e. on SR 138, then 4 mi. n. on SR 155, encompasses a 100-acre granite mountain that shelters plants and animals indigenous to the Piedmont region. The 1,635-acre park offers a 30-acre play area; a paved, 12-mile, multi-use nature trail; three 1-mile nature trails; two fishing lakes and an interpretive center with displays about the natural history of the area. Nature programs and guided hikes are offered from the visitor center. Fishing, biking and archery (bring your own gear) are available in the Alexander Lake area of the park. Self-guiding hikes are permitted on three trails, but due to conservation concerns, hikes up the mountain are always guided. Bicycle, kayak and paddleboard rentals are available. Guided tours are available. Pets on leash are allowed. Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
