The road that services this run is not plowed and doesn't get much light so is likely to be snow and ice covered from December through late March. It schould be accessible by vehicles from April - late November only. The rest of the time will rquire some hiking in and out.
Robert Farmer---I seem to recall that one of the street names is Audley Riley or Audley Murphy or something.
Runnable Levels: N. Branch 5 ft and rising or over 6.5 ft. It may run at lower levels when there is a difference of 300 cfs between Steyer and Kitzmiller minus the flow from the Stony River in WV. This accounts for the addition of 4 tributaries between the two gauges
Permits are not required for this reach.

Tonight American Whitewater presented the Town of Friendsville, Maryland with a $5000 check towards the extension of the Upper Yough Access Parking Area. This, combined with a $1000 donation from Keelhaulers Canoe Club, made a strong statement of how much paddlers value the river and the town! Under the leadership of Mayor Spencer Schlosnagle and long time paddler and Friendsville resident Jess Whittemore the town raised $7 in additional funding for every dollar paddlers donated - just like they did on the initial construction! This makes these gifts a great value for the whitewater community. A big shout out and thank you to ALL who donated!
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
