Frozen Head Fire Tower (8/2/16, 3:34:33PM)
This hike follows an access road for the fire tower on Frozen Head. Parking is at Armes Gap on the shoulder of TN-116. Leave valuables hidden or at home. It's a rather steady climb from Armes Gap to the top of the fire tower, but as it is an access road for forestry and park vehicles only, the footing is very good and the road appears reasonably maintained. The CCC Depression era fire tower at the top of Frozen Head was replaced in 2006 with a new observation platform that gives some rather spectacular views. Along the way, you'll pass the access to the Brushy Mtn Prison Coal Mine trail (formerly a haul road) and Tub Springs and the adjacent camp site.
