Presidential Trail, Mt Rushmore is a 0.6 mile loop trail located near Keystone, South Dakota that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from March until November.
Short but sweet!
Easy walk and lots of different perspectives of the mountain. You have to see it at least once!!!
Great views of the presidents all along this trail. Expect lots of people whenever you visit this popular area. Nice easy trail.
Easy trail, lots of shade, lots of people, good views
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.
Fun hike to see Mt. Rushmore close up. We saw mountain goats on our hike too.
