HIGHLIGHTS: The Appalachian Trail meets the Mau Har Trail just before the climb to Three Ridges, and the two trails can be joined to hike a nice 2-3 day loop in the area. A forty-foot waterfall is one of the highlights of the Mau Har Trail. Three Ridges, located on the Appalachian Trail at 3,970 feet is a flat wooded dome that forms the northern wall of the Tye River Valley. There are spectacular views to the north and south from ledges along the crest, and The Priest is viewable to the south (and forms the southern wall of the Tye River Valley.)
