Looking for an unique way to celebrate July 4th weekend? Then join the staff and volunteers for a once a year opportunity at Panola Mountain State Park. Hike Panola Mountain to watch the sunset over downtown Atlanta, then wait as the fireworks from Decatur, and Peachtree City to Stone Mountain etch across the sky.
We recommend bringing water, a flashlight, and a blanket to sit on. Chairs will not be permitted. The hike to the summit can be strenuous in areas so closed toed shoes with good tread are required. We strongly encourage guests to arrive 25 minutes prior to 8PM, as guests will then have to travel in their vehicle to the hike departure location. Late arrivals will not be able to join once the caravan departs. The cost is $15/person. Ages 8+. A maximum of 75 participants will be allowed to ensure protection of the summit environment. Must call the Nature Center at 770-389-7801 to register. This is a rain or shine event and will only be cancelled if thunder and/or lightning occurs at any time during the hike. No refunds.
Parking fee: $5
