There are a number of access points on this run. Starting from the top (Access - river miles) they are: Monkton Road - 0.0, Merryman Park/Corbett Rd - 1.9, Glencoe Road - 4.7, Sparks Road - 5.4, Phoenix Road 6.7 . This river length was created to indicate a stretch where the river level is best described by the Glencoe gauge, not necessarily what might be a usual run. Summer Parking can be an issue at all the accesses, particularly Monkton Road, so it's wise to get there early.

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.
