What you'll do
With incredible views, steep drop-offs, and a moderately challenging but ultra-scenic climb to the summit, Yonah Mountain delivers one of North Georgia’s best and most popular hikes. Yonah rises from the foothills of Georgia’s southern Appalachian Mountains, jutting skyward from the rolling landscape between Cleveland and Helen. The mountain’s asymmetrical, iconic shape and massive, exposed rock outcrops near the summit lend to its popularity with hikers and climbers. This out-and-back, just-over-four-mile round trip hike travels from the mountain’s base to the Yonah Mountain summit on a meandering trail and gravel roadbed. The hike explores a rocky, mossy, boulder-filled forest that blossoms in springtime with abundant wildflowers, and passes multiple campsites along the way. At the summit, far-flung vistas extend in broad panoramas to the horizon, catching incredible views from multiple rocky, steep outcrops. After meeting in the parking lot and making the 2.1 mile hike to the summit, we will enjoy the best sunset view in the state of Georgia from the comfort of a hammock while enjoying a cold beverage and snack. We will then head back down to our cars for some quick tailgating and talking about the experience.
Hey there, I am Cody and will be your lead guide. Over the past 5 years, I have spent hundreds of hours on the trails and forests of North Georgia. My passion is getting people into nature and the outdoors more often, but with purpose. I have a coaching practice focused on getting people outside called "Living Your Adventure" and I'm an advisor for a company that leads companies into the outdoors to build company culture. Beyond Mt Yonah, I have taken groups on trips on the Appalachian Trail, Utah, Cohutta National Forest and more.

Where you'll be
The mountain’s green, rounded peak stands at 3166 feet, a 1400-foot climb from the trailhead far below. We will explore side trails that lead beyond the treeline that rings Yonah Mountain’s grassy summit. Views from these trails are gorgeous.
