Frozen Head State Park - Wartburg, TN

Frozen Head is a great park in the Tennessee State Park System in which to spend an afternoon. Any level of outdoor enthusiast can find a good time here. If you're just looking for some simple fun, they have multiple playgrounds and an awesome creek in which to splash and climb rocks. If you're up for a little more adventure, check out any of almost 20 hikes available, ranging from 0.1 mile easy trails, all the way up to 7 mile difficult treks.

This is yet another Tennessee State Park that is not bike-friendly. I'm not sure what the state of Tennessee has against bikes, but I'm getting to the point that I'd like to question why Rangers feel the need to prevent bike use in the parks. They do have one trail on which bikes are allowed, a 9 mile long fire road, but in the mean time, in the off-season, the kids can usually get away with riding around in an empty parking lot as long as a ranger doesn't see you. (Lame)

With that exception, Frozen Head boasts beautiful forests and a wide, rambling creek. I love taking photos here, especially in the fall. And again, it's one of our favorite places just to hang out in the creek or let loose on the playgrounds.

And lastly, if you are into birds, Frozen Head is recognized as an IBA, or Important Bird Area, by the Audubon Society. Over 130 different species can be observed here throughout the year.
