Where I go in the BWCA, superior national forest has some creeks & rivers that are class V in the spring, class II-IV in mid june. Some areas there are NO portages if you want to avoid the rapids. Just have to haul your gear through the woods to get to your next destination if you're not comfortable with running rapids. That's why I said in my previous post that if you're serious about BWCA, superior national forest area, you're going to need a lot more intel to be safe. A creek or river that looks flat when you start can turn into a class IV or V with little or no warning. (I learned the hard way) A trip to the BWCA, SNF to run any rivers creeks, you should talk to a ranger in the area you're considering. They'll let you know where NOT to go if you don't want rapids. The link I posted earlier, you can find the ranger info there.
