Mount Yonah Trail – Cleveland GA

by | Oct 3, 2020

Mount Yonah Trail MapWhen our RV travel takes us into an area that has hiking trails I’ll try to clear the schedule to see as many as possible. On this cool September morning, our son Joel came up to the North Georgia foothills for a few days and hiking was at the top of our agenda. We decided to tackle the Yonah Mountain Trail, a beautiful climb to the most visible mountains in the North Georgia foothills.

The Hike Up Mount Yonah Trails

I use a 1 out of 10 scale to base the difficulty of a hike. It’s very subjective and based on my physical abilities. Not scientific, but at least it gives a baseline to consider. This isn’t the toughest hike I’ve made, but it had its moments. I give it an 8 out of 10 due to the steep inclines and rocky terrain. Hopefully this doesn’t deter someone; Mount Yonah Trails is a fun hike, a 2.3 mile trail that climb 1,500 feet in elevation with the reward of stunning views of the valley along White County and the Appalachian Mountains in the distance.

The Views From The Mount Yonah Summit

Reaching the summit of the hike, we were rewarded with amazing views. On the day of our hike, we had a crystal blue sky with unobstructed views as far as one could see. Standing on the edge of the rock face we could see farms, vineyards and the mountain range are what poets write of and painters dream about. Bottom line – it was some kinda pretty!!


If one can handle a strenuous hike and is up for a couple hour work out, then the Mount Yonah Trail is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon enjoying nature and the reward of amazing views.
