ITINERARY

Frozen Head State Park is said to have some of the most superlative views in all of Tennessee. We’ll hit some of the highest points in Morgan County, TN, with a lot of elevation change (~2500 ft up and down). We’ll have the option on our Saturday hike in to climb up to lookout tower and see for miles in all directions.
We’ll drive out Friday evening and spend the night in the Flat Fork campground. Saturday morning we’ll head out to the trail, and hike to the Squire Knob campground (6 miles). About 4 miles into the day we’ll have an option to detour half a mile up to the lookout tower. Sunday morning we’ll continue the loop around back on our way out (about 3.5 miles out).
