Hi Everyone- Not to hijack the hiking forum too much, but there has been more and more chatter about paddling over the past few months and I figured I should share a page I use to find launch sites for unfamiliar places.

http://www.paddling.net/launches/

It's a pretty robust site if you drill into it.

To contribute to your delinquency in posting paddling info on a hiking forum, I present to you the Boston Kayaker: http://www.bostonkayaker.com/

He gets a bit more granular as far as routes are concerned. Includes dams, rapids, portages, etc. Separated by section.

Good resource!

I have used paddlenet to find some real gems that I'll mention for anyone interested: LONG POND IN WOODSTOCK!! On USFS land, beautiful little hideaway down a long FS road off of 112 out past Woodstock.

Danbury Bog off Ragged Mtn Hwy in Danbury, a must go to for birding and plants!!

Waukeena Lake in Danbury way out there, but fun and small.

Campton Bog in Campton on Bog Road, AWESOME PLACE!

Grafton Pond is a gem in its own right over in Wilmot area, lots of loons!

White Lake on the off season in Ossippee

Pemi- launching off in Bridgewater is fun

Oak Pond across from Squam Lake on 25?

I always have to put a plug in for the Nashua river. Especially if you're paddling solo and are looking for loops: there are a couple of long sections with very easy and enjoyable foot/bike returns. Most obvious, paddling the river and biking back to your car on the Nashua Rail Trail is an awesome 20 mile RT loop.
