We back packed up yonah mountain in November 2017. I won't lie it was steep but at right under miles up, the pain is worth it. We camped in the field at the peak of the mountain. Fire wood was plentiful. There are several fire pits in the area. Be sure to take everything you need including water. There is a seasonal spring near the top but it rarely flows. Sunset on the cliff tops are unbelievable as are the sunrises.
