It all depends on how many stops you make. I would plan on 2 days.

You can solve that problem by taking side trips on some of the twisties running west to east. When I felt the urge I'd use the GPS to find the twistiest roads (usually on the west side) and rip up and down a few times. The BRP was scenic, but I require periodic doses of adrenalin.

For anybody heading down it looks like the campgrounds/visitor centers are now closed with the rest of the government.

Timed this with near peak leaf changing season. If this shutdown continues on there are going to be a lot of unhappy campers, literally.
