Quick hike that you must do when at mt Rushmore. Unfortunately you can't do the entire hike in the winter months due to icy steps. Offers great views though of the Presidents.

This is a must hike if visiting Mount Rushmore. The mountain is even better when you get can up close and view it from the base.

Nice boardwalk trail to get you closer to the base of Mt. Rushmore. It has signs along the way that go into detail about/feature the individual presidents. At the end there is a studio to visit before heading back up to the main area/visitor's center.

Okay walk, nice to get a few different views of Mount Rushmore from various angles. Nothing to special, but nice to do if you're there.

Easy walk, not very exiting as trails go. The part is worth seeing once but you can see it from a couple of turnouts leading up to it better then anywhere in the park itself.
