Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Come celebrate Earth Day at Frozen Head State Natural Area. Division of Natural Areas Ecologist Sam King will lead a day hike through this scenic State Natural Area. While we won’t even get close to covering the 70 miles of trail at Frozen Head, we will spend the majority of the day hiking 7 miles on some of the most beautiful trails in the state. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy hiking shoes, as the terrain is fairly rugged. Also remember to bring plenty of water and pack a lunch for the trail. Join our Earth Day celebration as we highlight the conservation efforts of both Tennessee State Parks and Tennessee Division of Natural Areas. We will meet at the Old Mac Trailhead at 9:00 AM Eastern. For travelling guests primitive camping is available at Frozen Head and cabins are available at Norris Dam or Pickett State Parks (1 hr away). Trip leaders; Sam King has spent the last 6 years working for Tennessee State Parks and the Division of Natural Areas as a Park Ranger and an Ecologist., and Joe Nowotarski has been a Park Ranger at Frozen Head since 2014.
