CLASS I-II     27 miles
  This stretch of Sideling Hill Creek in Allegany / Washington County is 27 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-II section of whitewater. The beautiful scenery of Maryland and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream have people coming here. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature will have you coming back for more. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so why
    not pack your camping stuff too. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Maryland are easier than the national norm, so keep in mind that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. There are a few other
sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. If you're coming from Winchester it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.  
Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good spots for that around here.
