Cumberland Mountain hike

This past weekend I took a spring break moment and went camping out at Frozen Head. We did a short hike Friday and longer ones Saturday and Sunday. This photo is from our Saturday hike, a scout of the Cumberland Mountain segment of the Cumberland Trail. It's the northernmost segment and rather challenging; there are several steep climbs and rock scrambles. If you get an early start, you're probably OK, but we didn't, and of course if you're coming from Nashville, it's a long drive plus car shuttle to even get to the trailhead. We'll test it out again weekend when I lead a Meetup hike on it.
