Admission to park is $5. There are restrooms at Panola Mountain State Park and Alexander Lake. Come prepared for hills, and hot, sunny days in the summer.
This trail starts near the Panola Mountain State Park Nature Center and is connected to Rockdale River Trail
and Arabia Mountain Path. It is a paved, well-maintained trail, heading through the countryside. You'll share it with light traffic including bikers, runners, and walkers.
This part of the PATH trail system winds partially around scenic Upper Alexander Lake, a lookout point of Panola Mountain, and beautiful pine forest.
