Great visit - do the Presidential Trail - lots of great views. Also plan to attend the evening lighting ceremony and then go back the next day. The ceremony is very patriotic and moving. Don't miss the Sculptor Studio -- our ranger was terrific! (too bad she is retiring and this was her last presentation)

I liked the walk along this trail and the information. It is the off season so there was a bit that wasn’t open and we couldn’t walk along.

The Presidential Trail at Mount Rushmore National Memorial allows a closer look, with unique perspective, at the iconic monument. It ia a short paved trail, with a few steps, but is easily accessible for all ages. Our only dissapointment was that the trail was only partially open.

Very hilly, but fun to walk and get a closer view of the presidents. You get to be pretty close if you walk the loop and the forest itg goes thru is very nice. I think it took us about an hour to do.

This is a nice easy walk on a paved trail from the amphitheater to underneath the president's heads. We were only able to take half of the trail because of the time of day, but that was okay. It's a pretty walk.
