TVHikers Frozen Head Mountain Tower

Click here to view flyer

This hike affords the opportunity to explore Frozen Head State Park and its rugged wild terrain, close by the Cumberland Mountains. In the Tennessee State Park system, Frozen Head is a gem. This is a loop hike starting on the North Old Mac and returning on the Spicewood Trail. If the weather conditions are right, we should see why Frozen Head Mountain got its name. It is often covered by frost as it is a high point in the Cumberlands.

Dress in layers. We will work up a sweat going uphill and it will be cold and frosty at the top of the observation tower.

From the tower we will get a good view of the surrounding peaks and the old Brushy Mountain Penitentiary. It was home to James Earl Ray for 29 years. Sentenced in 1969, he escaped in 1977 and roamed through the Park and the Cumberland Mountains for 55 hours before being recaptured. He was returned to Brushy Mountain where he lived until he died.
