good trail w/ nice view at the top. steady incline almost the entire way. not the best on blazes would be the only complaint. it was actually 4.7 miles round trip too, according to my hiking app. once you reach the peak, the best sight is to the left were a handful of trees have been cut.

Amazing hike! It was challenging but worth the view a the top. There are bathrooms towards the top but I would not recommend using them as they are gross.

Such a GREAT day!! Did Blood via Freeman in the am and then did Yonah for the sunset and some full moon hiking.
Went the day after the Super Blue Blood Moon and could not have been happier. The views are always stunning and the sunset on this day did NOT disappoint. Hiked back down after sunset in the light of the GORGEOUS full moon.
Such a wonderful day. Had an amazing time.

This could be a difficult hike if you’re not in shape. Some steep, rocky parts and one spot where you have to do some rock scrambling, but well worth the view at the top. Highly recommend this hike for a sunset hike.

VERY difficult for a beginner hiker...cold and windy day. Large icy patches on trail near top. But well worth the view at the top.

It was a Challenge but it was worth the hike.. the view was amazing!

Awesome views. Great, well-managed Trail.

Good intensity. Nice views at several levels. Was very muddy and icy today. Clay was especially slippery.

Great hike with a well marked trail. Lots of traffic so expect company for most of your hike. Several very muddy (stop and knock your boots off) sections.

Great trail for a day and a half trip, we arrived on a Friday evening, set up camp, hiked and enjoyed the scenic views, and camped near the summit for the night again. Great for dogs, and not too difficult for families and elderly.

Great trail for sites to see. The icicles were beautiful, but as far as lightly trafficed... The lot was full with cats parked even along the dirt road in. Must've passed about 30-40 people, mostly groups of people. Guess we just picked a bad weekend in the off season. Still beautiful.

challenging and the view is worth it all...

This was a very great hike! Took about 2 hours to get to the top with a couple of stops. About half way up you will come to a view point. It is beautiful, but don’t stop and turn around there. The top is where there views are at! Definitely bring a big water bottle as there are no water fountains along the trail. There is a restroom right before you get to the top, so you are covered there. Once you get to the top you can see for miles; totally worth the climb! I’ve been up Kennesaw Mountain and honestly was not impressed with the views. Definitely recommend going early as more people start to show up around 10am and so on. We started at 8am and didn’t see a single person the whole way up which was very peaceful and relaxing.

This hike is a fairly easy stroll up the mountains. The Rangers train up there so you might get a chance to see some of the troops while you are up there. The view of Georgia from the top is quite nice!

After the hike be sure and visit some of the local wineries to relax! Many are dog friendly!

For an excellent description of the Hike Google Mount Yonah for Atlanta Trails. They give you specific sites with mileage.

Some describe this a hard or moderately strenuous. I concur. From the trailhead you begin to ascend and you continue to ascend except for one small descend after the stone steps.

I’m 69 and I admit it was a challenging Hike but well worth the effort. According to my GPS, I made the climb in a little over 2 hours with numerous short rests.

As usual, the descent took a toll on my hips and knees but not anything I couldn’t cope with.

The day was perfect for hiking with the temperature around 50F.

Be sure to take plenty of water even on cool days and wear a good pair of boots. The trail is rocky. I also recommend a walking stick for balance.

Lovely hiking! There's a bald at the top great for overnight trips. Just follow the green blazes up and enjoy the view!
