    Default auto road

    After reading some of the posts about the drifts...do people actually walk up the auto road to the top? I know it's not the same as hiking the trail. But avoiding the snow depth and making it to the top might be a nice compromise on a nice windy day eh?

    No.

    It's twice as far, it's closed to pedestrians and the snow drifts are just as big.

    But, there are a lot of people in the world so it's safe to say that more than a few have done this.

    And it seems you would spend far more time above treeline expose to the wind.
