To get to the put-in, cross Deer Creek on US1 northeast of Belair MD. Going North, Immediately after the bridge, look for a river access on left called Benjamin Bridge River Access.
Shortly after crossing under the US 1 bridge, a series of rocky Class II rapids occur which require eddying and choosing slots and routes ending in a tongue under the Forge Hill Rd. Bridge. If you look carefully, about half a mile below the Forge Hill Rd bridge, you may notice the remains of on old iron furnace on river left which is a good place to have lunch. The rest of the run returns to Class I moving water and large eddys down to MD 136 - Priestford Rd.

Many thanks those who have contributed to AW's Sang Run Access Fund on line. We raised over $1200 to pay for the porta potty and gravel. Thanks to you, we've maintained this site for the State of Maryland for over 20 years! Let's also give a special shout out to Don Millard, who has cut the grass in both Friendsville and Sang Run for many years to keep our access costs low. If not for him you might see a parking fee of $5 a head at both ends! Jeff Macklin Photo
