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

This is a harder hike so if your not used to hiking be ready for a lot of stopping and resting its pretty much straight up 3 miles up and 3 down hike. the views are well worth the pain you can see everything from the top. I would not go when it just rained it can be very slippery... More

We were staying in Helen, Ga and I wanted to do a local hike. This is very close and worth doing. The road leading to the parking lot is gravel and there are bathrooms without running water. The trail starts off with a bang and it will level out in places and then go upward again. I had on hiking... More

Yonah Mountain is a beautiful, shaded, hard hike. It took a little over an hour for a bunch our group to make it up the mountain. There are a few places to stop and relax. One bathroom area about halfway up the mountain. The trails were well marked and i had no confusion on where to head to next. The... More
