Deep Creek, Maryland, US
Dam to Youghiogheny River
||V (for normal flows)
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.

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.
