Tree climbing up state parks 

Tree Top Excursions, 2620 Highway 155, Stockbridge, 770-389-7801

Definitely not your childhood tree climbing days! Panola Mountain’s Tree Top Excursions lead you much higher into the canopy spaces of Southern red oaks like “Naomi Ruth,” which reaches roughly 100 feet. Climbs range from intro and group excursions to off-the-beaten path tours. You can even catch a few ZZZs in the trees. 

Prices: $15-$90, depending on the climb
