After traveling a mile through meadows and forest, users will begin to see Elkhorn Mountain, with dramatic peaks and rock outcrops.
Climbing steeply, the trail emerges onto a ridge where users can see the back of Mt. Rushmore. Two-thirds of the way to the top is a popular overlook and hitching rail.
Riders take note – there is only one minor creek crossing where stock can find water.
