Panama Rocks is an amazing experience. The natural caverns you get to explore as much or as little as you want. Remember to take a picnic lunch.

My hiking buddy and I drove an hour and a half to get to Panama Rocks, but upon arriving John informed us that they had closed this past Sunday. John also had no hesitation in providing us admission. If that's how I'm treated when they're...More

This is an unusual place in an unexpected area. It's got the intrigue of a Utah park, but in a wooded setting in the east. Lots to explore, and totally fascinating. You could easily spend a whole day here, but plan a half of a...More

Beautiful !!! Everybody had a great time. We spent about 3 hours walking around exploring, and 45 min watching the teens ax throwing. The staff was super friendly!

The hike through the Panama Rock Scenic Park was one of the nicest hikes I have been one. I just loved the many points of interests along the way. My favorite were the roots that grew along the sides of the rocks.

Panama Rocks is a must see! The trail is not stroller friendly so be sure to bring a baby carrier. My 4 yr, 7yr, and 10 year old had no problem with the hike. They also have a treasure hunt which is so much fun...More

Our trail is an easy to moderate hiking trail. There are short stretches with a 20-30% grade and embedded roots and rocks mean that it is not wheelchair/stroller accessible. If a person can walk on uneven ground for a mile... More

Pets are not allowed. Due to tight crevices and areas that have drop-offs, it’s a safety concern. They are pet-lovers and want our fur-babies safe!

There is a rest room available, some area for a blanket picnic and I think a swing set for the kids. It is open from the middle of May to middle of October.
