For anyone else who can't find this (like me, until a minute ago), it's just east of Cumberland, near route 220.

If you want whitewater, the first 2.1 miles, to Hazen Road near the PA/MD line, is by far the best. It is basically class II+, through a lovely gorge. After that, everything is anticlimactic, and the creek is mainly class I.

Upper Yough Access Depends on Everyone

7/16/2019
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
