The Big Sandy Creek in Preston County, from the Pennsylvania State line to Bruceton Mills, a very small, intimate stream with a 3-fpm gradient flowing through rhododendron thickets and small farms. The bed is sandy to muddy, but there is good fishing for trout and bass. There are some easy rapids at Clifton Mills and flat water from there to the dam in Bruceton Mills. The Upper Sandy run tips down beside Chestnut Ridge and slides into the Cheat Canyon, providing 6 miles of progressive slalom training while working up to low Class 4. Camping is available at nearby Cooper’s Rock State Park and in Albright.
