Explore a fascinating world of towering rocks, deep crevices and passageways, cool, cavernous dens, and small caves just 15 miles from Chautauqua Lake!

 
The Panama Rocks’ formations are a unique outcrop of 300-million-year-old quartz conglomerate sedimentary rock that extend about half a mile and reach upwards of 60 feet high. Find unexpected beauty and enchantment in the grotesque roots that snake down the rocks and the delicate ferns, mosses, and lichens that add to Panama Rock’s cool, jungle-like charm.

 
The formations at Panama Rocks are surrounded by a one-mile long hiking trail, but there is still more to explore off of the main trail.

 
Informational signs help visitors of all ages learn about geology, the environment, and local history along with an educational treasure hunt. Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Sorry, no pets are allowed.
