The best part of this run is just below the falls. Some nice little slide action into the Top Yough. Cool thing to do if you are stoppin by on a higher Top Yough run. Not really worth much above the top of Muddy Creek Falls. Pretty benine class II maybe III creekin bougy. The lower slides are a little class five action though; because of a few nasty undercuts and seives with all its good gradient down to the Yough. Drops about 50 feet from the base of the falls to the Yough in about 60 yards.
Runnable when there's been a lot of rain.
I ran it when the Bear Creek gauge was running 100 cfs. 150 cfs or higher would be better.

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
