Great Views from the top!

Tough hike to get up to the top, but the views are worth it. Expect it to be all uphill and some places are rough walking

The trail is very strenuous but the views at the top were so worth all the struggle. We were blessed with a little snow when we got to the top so that was an added reward despite being so cold and windy.

It's not too bad of a hike, but people who aren't used to hiking should proceed with caution! It's a beautiful hikes, great for dogs!

This is a great hike with some REALLY good views at the top. I would say the hike ranges from easy to strenuous depending on the exact section you are on. If you want a good workout, do the hike at a strong pace without stopping. We did the hike with three adults and a teen. We saw many families... More

We began at 9AM on a cloudless fall day of 40 degrees. It was peak leaf season and the parking lot was pretty full. The climb is moderately difficult as advertised. Our party of late 40's made it with a few stops. For locals, if you can climb Stone Mountain, you can do Yonah. The walk is technical as the... More

Had a good hike here today. It's not too strenuous, our 3 year old(almost 4) managed most of the hike by himself without being carried. I imagine this would be a pretty rough hike in the summer though. Great views from the top. Would definitely do this hike again.

If you want to experience a piece of the Army Ranger training climb this trail. There are many challenging connector trails that can challenge even the most athletic person. Not for small kids or someone looking for an easy hike. Breath taking view if you make it to the summit.

Difficult uphill hike with some level areas to catch your breath and take in the beautiful scenery. Keep going after the first lookout. The view gets much better. The restrooms seem a little more than halfway up. We were unsure of what trail to take when we got to the restrooms. We took the trail to the far right first,... More
