Don't miss this great drive. The turnoff is located halfway between Keystone and Mt Rushmore. Many visitors miss this as they hurry to see the Faces. Found on US 16A, this twisting winding narrow highway provides great photo ops; Pigtail Bridges, one-way tunnels and divided highways. At the top are two overlooks providing breathtaking views of Mt Rushmore and the Black Hills.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, it features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents (in order from left to right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
