If you plan on going to The Faces, you have to plan on doing the Presidential Walk. This is as close you can get to the carving and the boardwalk and trail / steps have endless picture-perfect views of the Presidents.

Beautiful walk to get you closer to the monument. Lots of stairs so may not be good for everyone. Got to see the sculptors studio too.

Short walk with closer views of the faces and learn more about Mt. Rushmore and those who worked on it.

I wish some trees are in the way of best picture taking place but still u get good pics . I wish the trail was taking us little near to the monument. But anyway if u take the trail from left u can get good views every few steps but from right i.e behind the stage same route but from right u need to climb at least 20-30 steps and 1-2 best view point since any one president will be out of view till u reach mid point of the trail.

You don't want to miss taking the trail for the up close and personal view of the presidents. Be sure to allow time in your schedule for this.
