The road closed for the winter Monday, November 16, so managed to get this visit in last minute. Depending on the season, there is a shuttle bus or reservation system you may need to utilize to visit since it can be very busy. The America the Beautiful pass covers entrance or there is a $10 fee at the self-service pay center if you are self-driving like we did.
