If you catch the bus up to Machu Picchu, you can still walk to the Sun Gate - get a bit of exercise, get a bit of a feel for the Inca Trail, see a different part of the Machu Picchu complex, and get a great view.
The Sun Gate affords spectacular views of Machu Picchu from higher elevation as well as of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
