Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
On the 16th (Tue), cruise along Iron Mountain Road, then trek along Presidential Trail, and then explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Keystone sightseeing planner .

Rapid City to Keystone is an approximately half hour car ride. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Rapid City in July; daily highs in Keystone reach 80°F and lows reach 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) so you can drive back home.
