I've got a permit for July for an Agnes entry for my first Q trip. I have not found anything that explains what the entry identifier means, i.e., do I have to take a direct route that starts via Agnes, or does Agnes simply have to be part of the itinerary? I assume the latter, since, by definition, getting to Agnes from PP requires transiting several lakes, so how would it matter whether it's three or thirty?

Reason I ask is that I wondered about this route, described elsewhere on this forum, except clockwise to avoid chances of being wind-bound on the last day:

"If you're looking for seclusion and exceptional fishing, you might consider PP to Agnes via Meadows, up to Silence and then the small unnamed lakes to Reid, over to Woodside, Hurlburt, Trant and Kahshahpiwi, then down to Side, Point, Nest and out."

Is the clockwise version allowed on an Agnes permit?
Is this a doable 6 day/5 night route?

Thanks!

The intent is you pass through the entry point on first or early day in trip, to spread people out. They understand that it sometimes takes a say to get there - like Sarah for instance.

First trip - two scout groups - one with Agnes and one with Sarah - leaders goofed and they switched permits. Rangers happen to stop the group going to Agnes but with the Sarah permit and redirected them. They resumed trip to Agnes next day but clearly it is sometimes monitored.

Yup, you've got to be heading toward Agnes. Expectation would be to get there on day 1 or 2. Once you get to Agnes, you can go anywhere in the Park.
