All right. After taking a tour of the trail yesterday with Michelle G. and Sebastien Baret, today I've run the Breakneck Ridge Trail from Rt9, to the Fire Tower and down to the Beacon parking lot following the white trail, then the white and blue and eventually the red trail from the tower to the parking lot. I've stopped there for 10 minutes and looped back.
I got lost two/three times going to Beacon and only once coming back to Rt 9.

Total cumulative time for the double transverse was 2:56:09 while the single was 1:30:16 (with unexpected detours cause by lack of knowledge of the course) going and 1:25:53 back.
I will not have many chances to run here again this year, but it would be nice to see of someone can improve this time to get things going. I think easily 25 minutes can be shaved without getting lost and taking some risks on the downhills (I was very cautious).
