“Buggy, but beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We couldn't hike to the top because the army was training, but we did hike to the helicopter landing. Amazing views of the valley! A bit buggy on the hike since it rained earlier that day. Prepare for some uneven ground and up hill climbs, but overall, great for a free hike!

“Moderate hike through forest, boulder fields and finally open rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Wonderful 5 mile round trip hike. Moderately strenuous. Bring water and watch out for poison ivy. Best of all it's free!

“Good day hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Though far from my favorite hike in the north Georgia mountains, Mount Yonah still provides for a fun and scenic day on the trails. Strenuous enough to make you feel like you're getting a little work in, the trail is still easily accessible for most kids age 6+. Several scenic overviews along the trail provide some great photo ops and the view is stunning in the fall.

“Great trail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

You must be in shape to hike this trail! The trail is 2 miles up a steep mountain but the views are so worth it!! We enjoyed the trail very much!
