This is a really neat video that I found on Facebook about the history of white-water sports (rafting, kayaking, canoeing) in Garrett County & specifically at Sang Run. The state of Maryland designated the Youghiogheny River a ‘wild’ & ‘scenic’ corridor and unhappy landowners and real estate owners took their frustrations out on the boaters…by shooting at them! Great history piece.
Gov. Martin O’Malley recently announced the Board of Public Works (BPW) approval of the acquisition of a 41-acre parcel in Youghiogheny Corridor in Garrett County. This property will provide a connecting point between the Youghiogheny Scenic and Wild River Corridor and the state-owned property of Deep Creek Lake at the dam.
“We are pleased to provide visitors much needed additional public access to the Youghiogheny Scenic and Wild River Corridor, a very popular location for fishing, whitewater kayaking, and hiking for Maryland families and visitors,” said Governor O’Malley. “The shortage of access points along the river corridor presents challenges for public entry and recreation, complicates important maintenance tasks, and impedes progress of rescue teams and emergency vehicles.”
