River Description


Antietam Creek is a great Class I-II run through beautiful natural scenery.
 
located southeast of Hagerstown, MD.

An excellent website for the creek is maintained by Antietam Creek Canoe Co..
 
Description:
 
This section is primarily characterized by Class I-II water with rapids created by dam ruins and sharp, tight turns on this narrow creek. Spring-fed, it holds water longer than other small streams in the area and is the last to freeze and first to thaw. Practiced novice boaters should be able to handle the rapids but watch out for downed trees, which can pose serious hazards on this tree-lined run.
 
Shorter or longer trips can be made on this creek, but some of the bridge crossings other than at Devils Backbone Park and at Rt 34 have historic preservation and/or landowner access issues.

Upper Yough Access Depends on Everyone

7/16/2019
Charlie and Sandy Walbridge

Many thanks those who have contributed to AW's Sang Run Access Fund on line. We raised just under $300 last week, a great start! Our goal is $1000 to pay for the porta potty and gravel. Let's get it done! To donate, please go to https://www.americanwhitewater.org/conte…/Membership/donate/? and and write "Upper Yough Access" in the comment line. 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! The Upper Yough Race is July 27 this year.Be there! Jeff Macklin photo.
