Description

This is a short connector trail from Centennial On Hell to Mount Rushmore National Monument. This is a shared trail, so horse traffic is common, but horses cannot be taken to the top. Tether areas are provided near the trail's end.

While dogs are allowed on the trails, they are not allowed into the monument (except service animals).
