Beautiful drive to the top to watch the sunset and sunrise. Glorious mountain bike trails, walks, waterfalls, picnic areas. Grab a coffee at the Springs. Aprox 45 minutes from airbnb to the summit. Generally road will closes when snow level come down too low but you can still get up part way, plenty of places to stop and build a snowman
