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.

Good hiking trail I have done this trail quite a few times, no water up top so take your water or once up top you can use your map and find a stream on the back side of the summit 1/2 mil. down. its a small stream just off the jeep trail, look on the north side of the road/ summit side. The old concrete footing makes a nice table to cook on...
