    Bike-pack-rafting: river resources? Ipswich and Merrimack

    Bike-pack-rafting looks cool. Can anyone recommend some river resources to get started?

    Both the Ipswich and Merrimack rivers seem possible. Where can I find descriptions, ratings (classification), maps, launches, damns, safety, etc.?

    Some kind o topo maps for a start. Why not just ride across a bridge? I get the wilderness versions, but not the urban idea.

    Ride to a river, take a boat ride, ride home (without having to walk back upstream to where you started)? Sounds like a good time to me! Maybe even hook into the Bay Circuit Trail.

    The BCT is exactly what I had in mind. From newburyport to the Ipswich and raft back. But I don't want to go over any dams or serious rapids.

    I rode the BCT Friday and Saturday from Ipswich to Harold Parker and back. Works great for backpacking. And the Ipswich seems "raftable" from what I saw...
