took 4.5 hours at a moderate/fast pace. Great hike with amazing views, especially from the tower. some of the views on the far end of the yellow are excellent.Trails were well marked. the only time I had trouble was when you are descending on the yellow trail. you come across a blue trail that goes up and an unmarked washout looking trail. take the washout trail and within minutes you should see the brook and you will get onto the white trail. definatly dress in layers as well. the wind is crazy at the top of the towers.
I remember Breakneck Ridge having a challenging start, super inclined but worth every minute. It was during my training and I remember it cold so it was the perfect day for training for my trip to Mt. Baker. Definitely love this trail it was descending it was still awful with trekking poles! But I still had a great time!
