River Description


This is the delightful, upper, Little Gunpowder trip. The first half is an almost continuous rock garden, starting out class I-II.  The second half is tamer - Class I.  The surrounding woodlands are full of deer and quite pretty.  This is the tamer upstream section of this little creek.  

Ed Evangelidi testifies:
This creek is quite flashy, so don't dawdle, or it might come down on you while you are running shuttle.

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 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
