River Description

Runnable only when there's been a loooot of rain. Usually this section is dewatered by the Deep Creek "Lake" power plant. The run continues for a couple miles on the Top Yough. The listed length and gradient are for the Deep Creek part of the run only.

Jared Curtioff contributed:
There are three main drops, the first of which is a 7-10 foot drop that has rocks just at the water surface. It's runnable with some careful scouting. The second is a cascade about 15 ft high. It's a little boney but is managable with a little care. Just below is a thirty-ft drop. The line I've run is off the two-tiered part. Make sure you land flat at the botton. It's really shallow. After that there are several small drops 'til you get to the confluence with the Top Yough.

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
