I'm going to be in the Adirondacks in a few weeks and plan to backpack etc
On the day I head back to NYC I'd like to go up Whiteface Mountain before I leave, but I have to head off early and it doesn't open till 9am!
Is it possible to drive up before the opening time and pay on the return? Or do they block the road? I only ask as when I was in Colorado got up Mount Evans for sunrise!
