Join Tennessee State Parks staff for an Introduction to Backpacking Workshop at Frozen Head State Park on Oct. 22.
Participants will be taught the essentials of backpacking and hiking on a 6-mile roundtrip hike through the mountains of East Tennessee.
Hikers will meet at 8 a.m. for a gear tutorial.
Participants should bring their own gear, such as backpack, sleeping bag and tent, but a limited supply is available on a first-come first-served basis.
The group will then head to Tub Springs campground on a roughly 3-mile hike.
