Panola Mountain Information
Bouldering is currently allowed at the South River boulders. During the fall season the rangers request that you sign in at the main ranger station (see directions below) and get a permit. There is hunting on adjacent tracts and controlled burns and the rangers would like to keep track of who is in the area.
The Panola Mtn boulders (actually on Panola Mtn) are open only on a tour basis. No climbing is allowed in this area if your not on a tour. This is strictly enforced and could hurt climbers access long term if not adhered to.
Parking for the South River boulders is $5. Go to the main park entrance off Highway 155 to pay $5 & then drive back down to the Alexander Lake parking.
Directions to the South River boulders -- from Alexander lake, park (after paying at main entrance) - and walk down the PATH (bike and walking path) over the dam at Alexander lake. Take a slight left onto a gravel road and walk past the head rangers house (on your left) and then past a large pole barn (on your right) and continue on this old gravel road (turns into a logging road) about 1 mile. The logging road turns into an ATV trail that leads you directly into the boulderfield.
