Join us for a fun summer backpacking trip and learn the essentials of backpacking and experience Frozen Head’s backcountry beauty at night. Meet at the Visitor Center on Friday July 17th at 12:00pm with a gear shakedown to make sure everyone is ready to hit the trails. If you have never been backpacking before, don’t worry – we will go through the essentials for a great backpacking trip. If you are in need of gear (backpacks, sleeping bags, tents, etc.) please email lydia.martinez@tn.gov for a list of options – this gear is limited and will be offered to participants on a first come first serve basis. We’ll hit the trails for a hike up to the Tub Spring Campsite. Weather permitting, after sunset Seasonal Ranger Jackson will provide us with a fascinating astronomy program on top of our fire tower. Details online. Cost $50. Register online.
