Very easy climb over into the Pitfall Primitive Management Area. You'll need a PMA permit to spend the evening in this series of lakes. Weather forced us to change our plans and we were unable to spend the evening as planned. We explored Link, Gift, Fish, and Nawakwa lakes. Easy portages into each lake. Wonderful hidden areas to explore in this chain. Once past Link, you will see evidence of the Cavity lake fire. Beautiful destruction. We were there the summer after the fire, and found evidence of renewal already. Wildflowers were everywhere as we played hide and seek with merganser family.

Pretty easy stop here when we came through. A short jump and then back in the water. The channel after this portage is really pretty.

The landing on Hanson is located slightly North of where it's marked on the map and is a little tight, but not too bad. The trail is short and has good footing.
