Not as tough as some people say.

Went there Sunday Aug 30th, Rained the way up, rained the way down. Unless you have never set foot on a dirt path before the hike up is really not that bad. Sure it is uphill, but... read more

Went there Sunday Aug 30th, Rained the way up, rained the way down. Unless you have never set foot on a dirt path before the hike up is really not that bad. Sure it is uphill, but people seem to overdo the description. Several people we saw were doing it in Chaco's. Bring water since there really is no place... More

We recently went with our 5 year old son. This hike is awesome! It's a bit of a challenge with how steep some spot are but still very managable. Once you get to the top and follow the path to the side the views are insane! A must do if you are in this area!

Based on other reviews, I was expecting a much more strenuous hike. I actually hiked this with flip flops and jeans in July. Now, I wouldn't recommend flip flops or jeans but it is doable. ;) I consider it a moderate hike with some challenging areas. The view is great and worth the hike.

Our goal was to hike Yonah Mountain trail and then sport climb the mountain. awith all out gear it took us 4 hours to climb to the summit. This trail is steep and rugged. But if you take your time itis a very challenging and beautiful hike. We did have trouble getting local knowledge of the actual climbing area but... More

We were staying on this mountain, so it was easier for us, but the trail keeps going and going up. At the top is an Army training area, so you are supposed to call ahead, but unless you hike up over the top boulders, you can do most of the trail anyway and see if they are there. I don't... More

Once you find the trailhead, you are in for a great hiking experience! It was 2.5 miles to the top, and some of the terrain was pretty rugged. Wear good hiking shoes, and I recommend that you bring water, snacks and a walking stick. It's challenging enough to feel as if you really accomplished something special when you arrive at... More

Always love this trail, I go every time I go to Helen. It is so beautiful at the top! Be prepared to have water and snacks because this is a real hike.

I've been coming up to Yonah off and on for 25 years. Its steep but a great hike to the top and along the rock ledge. There used to be more ways up but you can find longer trails and picnic but watching the hawks catch wind off the bluff and surf the horizon is surreal. On a clear day... More

We went here for a Memorial Day hike for the first time. I didn't expect it to be completely uphill...duh, what was I thinking? It's up a mountain! The view from the top is definitely worth it. Pack a lunch and enjoy the view for a while. There's also lots of places to camp and lots of overlooks to stop... More

I absolutely love this hiking trail. I consider it moderate - with some challenging parts. As others have stated before me, there are many different places to stop and take photos or simply look out. The view from the top is awesome!
