Easy trail; crowded

Visited Mt. Rushmore on a family vacation. What more can be said than a great memorial to great men of a great nation.

Invigorating and beautiful in the fall. We enjoyed the variety of ecosystems. North end of trail is rustic but this app keeps you on the right trail.

3 year old walked all. 2 year old walked half. Stopped at Artist's studio. Not stroller friendly. Nice way to extend the trip to Rushmore and get a closer view.

The best part of this trail is the rocks you can climb off trail. That is where the great views are....

Nice trail that allows you to see the presidents from all angles

Great hike. Moderate grade creeks and some great views when you get to the top. Only do the loop part if you are an experienced hiker and can bushwhack through the wilderness

A relatively easy hike until this loop at the southmost point. There is NO trail there. We persevered trying to make our way using GPS & finally did, but it was nothing less than treacherous and in my opinion DANGEROUS. This loop on this trip should NEVER have been left on the AllTrails site. We are very experienced hikers and never have encountered anything like this. Our worst hike ever (and we hike 72 miles/month)

Short and easy, good to get away from the crowd for a while

Awesome hike!

Fun and not that difficult, just a lot of steps.

Not for strollers, but easy enough for the whole family, even on some of the tougher parts there are great rest areas.

As easy as it gets. Great for photographs!

very nice wonderful to see such a majestic sculpture, suggest going counter clockwise, afternoon is better after crowds thin out.

Great R & R trip with the family.

More of a walk than a hike. Slight incline but mostly flat. Not much to see other than trees.

the end loop isnt marked, but other than that it was a variety of sights and types of trail, bolders, sands, gravel and rivers.
