  • The drive up is a little freaky in spots but worth it at the top. The neat thing is how you can see Crazy Horse, the Needles, Mount Rushmore, and the Badlands (too hazy when we were there) just by mov...  more »
  • Amazing views for miles! The road up is a little scary, but if you can white knuckle it, it's definitely worth it. I'm the distance you will be able to see the Presidents, Crazy Horse, Cathedral Spire...  more »

  • If you can drive up, then the views are great! If you walk up there on a cold and windy day, maybe not worth the trip. In any event, like any high elevated area, you will have spectacular views.
  • You can see crazy horse straight on and the side of mt rushmore through public viewfinder binoculars. They are very far away and can barely be made out by human eye. Eagles may be fine. Amazing drive up but pretty dicey if an oncoming car has to get by. You will be very close to the edge with no guardrails on your right side. The drive down is less scary just go slow so people coming up don't go careening off the side when they see you.
