Hang Out in Morgan County, Tennessee

NEXT HEAD OUT to FROZEN HEAD STATE PARK and check out the Waterfalls in the area and the Ranger led Events they have all year long, including a Big Foot event. TAKE A HIKE at the OBED WILD AND SCENIC RIVER which has high bluffs, sculpted cliffs, and lush forested slopes that creep to the edge of the river, which can be placid in summer and torrential in winter and spring.

A PHOTO OP is the .5 mile walk to the LILLY BLUFF OVERLOOK for the entire family to enjoy.
