On Monday, September 15th, 2014, I completed the Bigelow Range Traverse in 4:44:14, unsupported. The weather was clear, cool, and dry. I started at the Stratton trailhead off Rt 27 around 10:36am, followed the Cranberry Range Trail, intersected the AT, and followed the range, and trail, east over all the major peaks, include the spur trail out-and-back to North Horn, stopping my watch when I touched East Flagstaff Road. I lost the trail twice, including going out to the Old Mans Head Scenic View Point, and back. My mistakes added about 1/4 mile to the route.
