Mt. Rushmore Profile View

Keystone, South Dakota


Added by Sami Smith

Cool little pull off area to get a shot of Washington’s face from the side between the mountains. There is a pull off on both sides of the road and a popular spot to stop and photograph this unique perspective of Mt. Rushmore. 

For the loop trail to see more of the sites of Mt. Rushmore, check out The Presidential Trail, which is a less than one mile loop.
