Yercaud is, still, not a chosen destination from Bangalore as yet. Which is not to say that you will be alone, just that it usually is the last choice of most. One of the reasons could be the fact that the drive to Yercaud can be rather boring for some. Except for the last 29 kms from Salem. That drive is spectacular especially in the late evening. The total driving distance from Bangalore is little over 210 kms.
