Frosty Mountain is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest along the Approach Trail to Springer Mountain (the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.) The summit was once the site of a U.S. Forest Service lookout tower, but it has been removed and all that remains is a flat area suitable for overnight camping. A seasonal spring is located a short distance to the southeast although it may be difficult to find especially in the summer months. This hike makes a loop from Nimblewill Gap at USFS 28 and follows the Approach Trail to Frosty Mountain. It then returns to the parking area via USFS 46 which is a rough route that is only suitable for four wheel vehicles. There are a few moderate ascents and descents on the Approach Trail, but the USFS 46 route is graded and fairly easy to hike. A side trail to the Len Foote Hike Inn is accessible from the Approach Trail in this section and makes a nice side hike if you have the time.
