This hike is in Frozen Head State Park near Wartburg, TN.  We will combine the Ross Gap, Cumberland and Bird Mountain trails.  The hike will depart the campground and follow the road to the beginning of Ross Gap trail.  The trail climbs steadily about 1200 feet to the intersection with the Cumberland trail.  There is evidence of mining along the trail and we will make in interesting rock crossing.  When the Cumberland trail meets the Bird Mountain trail, we will make a slight detour to explore Castle Rock.  Bird Mountain trail descends steadily back to the cars completing the loop.
