On November 2, 2014 starting at 8:05AM I ran an out and back on Breakneck Ridge to the Beacon Fire Tower and down to the Beacon parking area with a cumulative time of 2 hours 40 minutes and 48 seconds. I followed the route that Carlo Agostinetto had set on August 31, 2014. Conditions today were Sunny, dry, and temperatures in the 30s to 40s which made the portions with exposure very runnable, but there was a consistent 20mph wind. I believe the temperatures and wind may also have kept many hikers from venturing out. My GPS recorded 12 miles total with 10,600 feet of elevation change. Provided below is a link to my GPS in addition to some splits in case there is an error.
