Liar’s Ridge

Hey Walt,

I’m sure there must be an interesting story behind the name, but I can’t find anything about it on the internet. A Google search points only to mushroomobserver. There is a tiny hamlet on the other side of Athens called Liars Corner, so I imagine the two names are connected in some way. Liars Corner is at crossroads in the national forest. There are a few 19th century log cabins and a couple modern houses there. There is another little hamlet nearby called Truetown; it’s just a few houses at a Y in the road.

Maybe at one time a pathological liar lived at liars corner and then moved to Liars ridge. That’s pure speculation. It would be neat to know the history of the name.

Liars Ridge trail is on private conservation land recently opened by the Athens conservancy. It’s big deep woods with lots of old trees; it’s one of my new favorite places.

Nice find on Liar’s Ridge, Dan

It is uncommon in NE Ohio but where it is, it fruits every year. Liars Ridge? Is there a story behind that name?
