Great hike, amazing views, but be realistic about what you're about to tackle...
2021年10月
Hiking Mt. Yonah was an amazing experience! It's an overall 4.2 mile hike, and the first half of it is all uphill - no level areas, you will be continually moving higher up and you're mostly walking on rocks. Beautiful trail, would recommend you bring a good supply of water and healthy type snacks like nuts, fruits, and protein bars. Take breaks! I'm a photographer so I got tons of still pics and some video clips. The views from the summit are amazing and well worth the effort to get there.

Two tips - the trek downwards can actually be the most treacherous, be very careful - a slip in the wrong place could end in bad news. Also, and I'm guessing no one has just come out and said this, but if you're out of shape, obese, or have heart issues you need to seriously reconsider. In just the time I was on the trail I would estimate I saw 6-8 hikers that were hurting, one even didn't even try for the summit and came back down. It's a doable hike but you have to have a little gas in the endurance tank to make it up and back.

Great experience!

Would Go Again!
2021年9月
My husband and I took a spontaneous trip to Helen, from South Florida just for this hike. We were supposed to go for our honeymoon however plans changed but we finally got to go to Yonah!

My first recommendation is to get their early. It is heavily trafficked. We arrived around 9:30-10am and there were already a good amount of cars on the lot. By the time we left, the path to the parking was getting blocked by cars on one side which can make maneuvering the gravel road a bit more difficult.

Another recommendation is, if you're not a frequent hiker, to have a map or use Alltrails as a guide, plus a compass, before doing this hike. We had a map and had looked into the path multiple times and we ended up taking paths on the way back that weren't the ones we initially took. There are green markers to help but not everywhere and at times it could get confusing which path to take. Various times, on our way down, we had people ask us which direction to take or how long until they got to a certain point in the hike.

The hike is a bit strenuous but doable. There is some rock climbing involved in a few sections, nothing too crazy. I would say make sure you have the right shoes for this and to watch your step. Aside from that, make sure to have plenty of water.

The views are spectacular. There is a midpoint with a great view but the top is where it makes the hike worth it. There are various overlooks since the trail goes around the entire top of the mountain it seems.

It took us about 5 hours total however I want to point out that this is only our second big hike and due to some burst blisters, had to go slower halfway up the trail plus taking time to admire the scenery. I think no more than 4 hours would be a reasonable time for the entire hike to and back if you take breaks.

Great Views worth the work to get to the top
2021年4月
So this is a strenuous hike but very manageable if you take your time on the uphill part. The trail itself is beautiful and well marked. We arrived early and were able to park in the parking lot. The parking lot is on the smallish side however there is parking along the road leading to the trail. The road going to the trailhead is unpaved and has some large ruts,etc. The views are very pretty from the top and well worth a visit. I would recommend shoes with good grip due to the few sections that require climbing over rock,etc. We took our small dog ( 15lbs) with us and he only needed carried over a few places. On the way down we did pass a lot of people coming up the trail and there were a few sections that required you to wait until others passed. I would definitely arrive early.

Info For Fellow Obese Hikers
2021年3月 • 夫妻情侣
I am a very hefty woman, well over 300lbs. I wanted to go hiking with my husband for our anniversary. People from our gym had just done Yonah and suggested it for us. They told me it would be hard but also know my abilities and told me I could do it. When the hike first started I did not know what I was getting myself into. I expected the trail to be similar the whole way up. Wrong! After the half way point, it gets very steep. Half way point to the army camp was the hardest part for me. We took several 1-2 minute breathers and I went very very slow. It took us 2.5 hours to get to the summit! But I did get to the summit! I was too afraid to go to the rock facing and stayed in the trees but I cant wait to try again and actually go to the edge. The journey back down was very painful on my knees. At the steep points my husband stood in front of me to hold on to him so I wouldn't fall. By the bridge at the bottom my toes were hurting very very badly from my shoes. But when I reached the parking lot I was crying tears of pure joy as my husband clapped for me. This is a very hard hike if you are overweight. But if you have the right mindset and willpower you CAN absolutely do it!

Your Zen
2020年8月
You drive half way up the Mountain, park the car and your experience begins. The trails start to incline about the 3 mile mark (be ready as this is not a beginner trail ). The trail is almost 5 miles to the Waterfall at the end. Its so worth it. We were the Last ones there. Many Streams & Bridges. Give yourself a Half a Day for this as It takes hours to get up (Took us 3.5 up and 2 down )

Great hike. Beautiful views!
2020年7月
Tough hike, but we didn’t bring water and were fine. Only just over 2 miles to the top but very steep! 1,400 ft in elevation gain. My kids (8 & 11) loved the challenge! Might bring water next time, but it was also nice not to carry anything. Cool Native American history (and army ranger training) to this mountain of you google it.

Beautiful Views
2020年7月 • 家庭
This is about a 4.5 mile hike to the top of Yonah Mountain. The path is clear but has roots and some rocks. At the halfway point up the mountain, there is a grassy clearing for your first good view. After that, the path gets much steeper. At the top, there are many outcrops you can sit and enjoy views. It was a little hard finding the trailhead, but the parking lot is on a short gravel road off Chambers road. No fee to park and pit toilets. I would say this hike is moderate to strenuous, but very doable. Take lots of water.

Worth it!
2020年7月 • 好友
I’m a Georgia native and always wanted to do this trail. It is well-worth the challenge and the view from the top! I am an experienced hiker, but had not been on a trip in two years due to a problem with my foot... meaning I am not currently in top condition :) It was still doable, so if you aren’t a regular hiker, plan to take your time and bring snacks. I highly recommend hiking boots because the trail is rocky. You will get better traction and prevent ankle rolls. According to Atlanta Trails, it’s a 1400 ft. climb over 2.2 miles. The trail is mostly shaded and there are really cool boulders all along the trail and through the woods. There were tons of beautiful wildflowers everywhere. Definitely apply bug spray. I did but still got a few bites (chiggers).

The turn to the trail is not marked, so use GPS to find the road. It’s about 15 minutes south of Helen going toward Cleveland. There’s a right turn onto a small side road, then another right on a gravel road. If you have a low-clearance vehicle, you will need to navigate the gravel road carefully because it is uneven.

Final note... the view at the top isn’t the only thing to appreciate. Take your time and notice the little things along the way.
