Outcrop Trail is an easy hike in Panola Mountain State Park near Atlanta. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, however your furry kids must be on leash. The park says "this 3/4 mile trail overlooks a granite outcrop typical of many found in Georgia’s Piedmont Region. After traversing a second-growth pine-oak forest, the trail brings you to an overlook where you can see evidence of the geologic forces that created the mountain, as well as the erosion shaping its present appearance. Be sure to look to your right to see Panola Mountain itself! Along the way, you will see some of the plants and animals found in this unique ecosystem; many with special adaptations that allow them to survive on the bare rock face." There is limited camping available in Panola Mountain State Park.
