“You have to do this while there.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

You've come this far, you have to do the trail.
As you view the mountain, start the trail on the left- this will allow you to walk down the stairs versus up. My daughter counted the steps, but stopped at 100.
Lots of great views and interesting information along the trail.

“It's okay ”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

It's not really a hike it's just a lot of stairs to get you different angles of the faces so I mean I would for sure do it also you should take one of the Ranger tours as well

“Gets you a closer look at the carvings”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

We took the presidents trail and it was a very easy walk. The audio tour helped make it even more interesting.

My mother who is older walked halfway and returned without having to do all of the steps. This was a great benefit.

“Good walk for adults, but kids were complaining ”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

We went right around the trail. Kids were complaining by the time we got down to that studio building. You get up close to Rushmore and it does give different views than the typical. If you take kids or strollers, go left until you reach the closest point and then go back the same way. It might have said that somewhere, but I didn't read it.
