2016 Jim Schmid walks Presidential Trail at Mount Rushmore National Memorial – SD

After biking the last three days on the George S. Mickelson Trail I took a morning off and walked the Presidential Trail at Mount Rushmore National Memorial.  The trail is 0.6 miles long with 422 stairs. Mount Rushmore is just a few miles from the Mickelson Trail and not to be missed. I’ve seen pictures of the four presidents since I was a little guy and this felt like I had already been there and was just on a return visit. I got there at 8 am. It was cool weather and not many people. What a great country we live in. You pay for parking, there’s not entrance fee.
