View Full Version : Three Ridges water and people

I hiked the Three Ridges-Mau-Har loop in Central Virginia this weekend, tented at Maupin Field shelter. In case anyone wants to know, there was water in Campbell Creek along the Mau-Har, but nothing but a puddle or two at the shelter. Harper's Creek was totally dry at the Harper's shelter on the other end. Tye River looked pretty low too. I counted a total of 40 people over two days, day hikers mostly, but several groups of backpackers as well. Hot and humid, I was very glad I went over Three Ridges north to south rather than the other way. Saw no wildlife except for numerous bugs and one small bird.
