Yonah Mountain (commonly referred to as "Mount Yonah" or, by older Georgians, "Yonah Bald") is located in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest in the north of Georgia in the United States, between the towns of Cleveland and Helen. Yonah is the Cherokee word for Bear.
There is a signed trailhead from Chambers Road and an approximately 2.3 mile trail (gaining 1500 feet in elevation) leads to the summit. There are also side trails that lead to neighboring Pink Mountain.
The 5th Ranger Training Battalion, Ranger Training Brigade of the United States Army conducts the Mountain Phase of Ranger School on Yonah Mountain. It has been a popular training ground for rock climbers.
