Paved trail with great close-ups of the mountain. Very easy and family friendly. Kind of a must-see if you are visiting Rushmore.

If for any other reason than to be up close, you need to take this trail. Very easy walk and like others have written, you just might see a mountain goat. I can think of no other place that I have ever seen one besides Yellowstone from afar. The enormity of the project is realized from this trail and there are some key places for pictures underneath.
