Definitely lives up to the hype. No charge to get in but there is a parking fee – for which you get a permit valid for the rest of the year. I went twice – on the evening I arrived and again the next morning. The evening talk and ceremony was very moving then afterwards the faces were illuminated.
The natural illumination on the faces is much better in the morning. If you are going to walk along the Presidential Trail start at the Visitor Centre/Accessible end and you will be going mostly down the steps. If you start at the Sculptor’s Studio it is mostly uphill I discovered (but this could mean you deserve an ice cream afterwards :) The ranger led walk was good – the 10.00am one is always the busiest according to “my” ranger.
Food is cafeteria style and was ok. Being able to have free coffee refills all day was outstanding!
