River Description


There is an option of running a  two part Class III rapid called "Deer Creek Rapids @ Rocks" located upstream of the gauge at the beginning of this run. Much of the rest of this long run is rather tame but pretty.  The take-out for the 12.8 mile long run is at the Benjamin Bridge River Access just off US-1.

Ran on 9/13/18 @ 3.09 on the gauge. This was a good level, we never bottomed out for the entire 13 miles in a heavy canoe. This stretch is mostly level 1, with some level 2 rapids interspersed. The scenery is quite nice too. We ran into 1 creek-wide strainer several miles downstream of the gauge that we navigated by squeezing in under the trunk. This would be dangerous at higher levels. As a point of comparison, we found the Octoraro to be a little more challenging. The takeout is easy to miss. It's a paved boat ramp upstream of the Rt. 1 bridge on the left hand side. You won't be able to see the bridge from there, but you can hear it.

Upper Yough Access Depends on Everyone

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
