This was a 30 min short drive up to the mountain. The view of the top was memorable but there were a few spots I thought were narrow and too close to the edge! Drive carefully and enjoy the view!

Very nice road leading to a gorgeous view. Saw several bears in the area. Road can be crowded, but definitely worth the ride.

I don't know if the road is closed at night. The NPS website doesn't tell. I guess the best is to ask directly to the rangers through their website.
