It was interesting to read numerous sites about this hike before we went. Some said it was strenuous. Others said it was easy. I guess reviewing anything is very subjective. My husband and I enjoy day hiking and feel like we are fairly fit. This...More

One of our favorite activities on our stay in Helen. Will break a good sweat on a hot day, I recommend 30-60oz of water and some trail snacks. There are shortcut trails to reduce the mileage but they are very aggressive, I recommend staying on...More

This is a pretty straightforward Georgia mountain hike. Start from the parking lot, follow the trail, and you'll get to the summit in a couple of hours. The view is okay, but like most mountains in the state, there is a lot of tree cover,...More

This was a really nice hike, with lots of pretty views. We are not expert hikers, and it was a bit hard, but it was a great workout!

Excellent hike! Definitely a work out. Lots of beautiful views. Trail is really clear. I saw many people along the way. Lots of people with dogs. Bring plenty of water. Leaves can be slippery on way down. Easy to access. Restroom at trail head and...More

We came over from Blue Ridge to visit Helen and decided to hike the mountain. Was up for a challenge based on reviews. The person who said “ok view” must not have had their contacts in. Granted if you live out west and mountains are...More

After being inactive for a number of years, I've recently taken up hammock camping again. Last Thursday, I took off early from work and headed to the mountains. I carried food, water, and camping equipment for cold (39 degrees) and wet weather. Total back pack...More

The road in is a bit routed but fairly ok. The trail has a few treacherous parts over some rocks. View is ok.

2.1 miles up, then back for a total just over 4 miles. The trail's end is a grassy clearing at the top of Yonah Mountain, with obvious footpaths that lead to various overlooks. There is no danger of falling from the actual trail, and when...More

Straight up. Very few flat areas on the trail. Keeps going up and up. Beautiful views. So worth it. The walk down is great. So glad we did it. You could see the vineyard we went to after for a tour and taste.

Yes buts it's very steep and narrow and some parts are really scary and are at the edge of the mountain. And it's 3 miles up and 3 miles down.
