Yonah Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Near the center of White Country lies massive Yonah Mountain, a 3156-foot peak with a great brow of exposed granite stretching across its upper face. That sea of granite has made climbing the primary activity on Yonah, though improved access has attracted more hikers. A gravel access road leads to a well-constructed parking area.

A unique aspect of Yonah is that it serves as a training site for the US Army Ranger 5th Battalion. The Mountain Phase of Ranger School includes climbing instruction, so the rangers have established bolted routes that are ideal for beginner or intermediate climbers and are open to the public when not in use by the school. Less than a mile in, a grassy clearing offers views of a placid valley, and higher on the mountain, exposed granite faces make a great perch to look out over rolling forested ridges and the lowlands to the south."
