As of Sept. 1, 2011, the main gate is closing at 8:00 pm. The parking lot at the summit is closed at 7:45 pm, so you should be hiking out before 7:30 pm.

--------

As of March 1, the parking lot at the summit is closed at 7:45 pm, though the sign says 7:00, with the park entrance gate closed at 8:00 pm. That is well after dark at the beginning of March.

That allows time to leave by Three Bears Gully or by Jomeokee Trail uphill, with Big Gully short-cut closed to all entry by order of the Superintendent.
------

As of May 1 this year (instead of June) the summit parking lot does not close until 8:45, with the park entrance gate closed at 9:00 pm.

Anticipating the return to Eastern time, as of Nov. 1 the summit parking lot will close at 5:45. That is two hours earlier, and before sundown until the time change. Park staff has been upset at climbers leaving late, which means the staff must be late too. Don't upset park staff, please.
