From our camp, we headed up along the creek to what should have been a 5-6 mile hike. Unfortunately we missed the sign, which was sitting on a pile of rocks, by the way and our loop turning into a 10 mile out and back. None the less we made some amazing discoveries along the way.

Big Frog Wilderness is an amazing place. A 4,200ft peak, creeks, animals, and wonderful views we won't soon forget. And Tennessee has been both eye-opening and friendly, we will be back to explore you more.
