I went with a few friends to Frozen Head Sate Park near Wartburg, Tennessee and we hiked the Bird Mountain Trail which is part of the Cumberland Trail.

I had visited Frozen Head only once previously and hiked the North-South Old Mac trail to the lookout tower. The tower was closed on this visit due to many fallen trees and power lines that were currently being cleared by inmates from the Brushy Mountain Prison facility nearby.

The hike was approximately 7 miles and had a huge elevation on the first part…the upside to that is the second half from Castle Rock on was downhill.
