Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area is situated in the beautiful Cumberland Mountains of eastern Tennessee. The 24,000 acres of relatively undisturbed forest contain some of the richest wildflowers areas in Tennessee. The mountainous terrain varies from an elevation of 1,340 feet to over 3,000 feet on 16 different mountain peaks. Frozen Head, elevation of 3,324, is one of the highest peaks in Tennessee west of the Great Smoky Mountains. From its observation tower on a clear day, one can plainly see the Cumberland Plateau, Tennessee Ridge and Valley, and the Great Smoky Mountains. In winter, the mountain peaks are often capped with snow or ice while the lower valleys remain unadorned, thus giving the park's namesake, Frozen Head. The park's lush vegetation, small streams, waterfalls and beautiful mountains make Frozen Head one of Tennessee's most scenic parks.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Frozen Head State Park and many more Wartburg attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Wartburg trip planner .

Stopped for a day hike. Falls and spring wild flowers were great! Never saw so many people hiking with dogs. Our 2 pups had a ball. Definitely want to come back for more hiking!
The park is in a nice location with several other parks in the local area. There are many trails available to go on ranging from easy to strenuous, with most leading to various campsites and some to views of falls in the area. All trails are well maintained and marked and would recommend checking this park out if you're in the area.
