This trail gives you amazing views of the monuments and takes you over to the sculptor's studio. The photo ops are awesome. Beware, there are many, many steps. This would have limited access for those with limited mobility. There are numerous benches and seating areas for those who tire and need to rest.

You get a great view up pretty close. You can get some great pictures from this view. If you are unable to take many stairs. You can still do this trail. You just have to turn around once you hit the stairs.

We were very happy we took the audio tour along the Presidential Trail. You get up close to the Presidents and get some very good information on the audio devices.

You better be in shape if you are going to take the presidential trial as there are lots of steps to take. There is a place where there are two rocks together that makes a cave where you can look out and see Mount Rushmore. I would recommend that and I also suggest using the bathroom before you take it and bringing some bottled water.

Take the time for this walk if you can. The photos you will take from here will be priceless. We meet several people from all over the World. It was fun to hear what everyone had to say.
