AAA Editor Notes

Panama Rocks, .2 mi. w. of jct. SR 474 and CR 33, then w. on CR 10 (Rock Hill Rd.), is an outcrop of Paleozoic sea islands compressed into quartz-conglomerate rock fractured by earthquakes and unearthed by glaciers. The huge rocks, some more than 60 feet high, extend along a half-mile ridge, creating cavernous dens, small caves and hundreds of passageways formed by deep crevices. A 1-mile self-guiding hiking trail passes through a forest of beech, cherry and maple trees and stands of hemlock that are 200 to 300 years old; their intertwining roots snake down and around the rocks. Pets are not permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
$7.50; $6 (ages 65+ and college students, military and veterans with ID); $5 (ages 6-12). Ages 0-17 must be with an adult.
Hours: Daily 10-5, mid-May to mid-Oct. Last admission 1 hour before closing. Phone ahead to confirm schedule.
