This instantly recognizable mountain carving by sculptor Gutzon Borglum is one of the nation's most-beloved treasures. The 60-foot-tall faces of four of America's greatest presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, look down from their 500-foot mountaintop above the beautiful forests of the Black Hills. The Avenue of Flags, a concession building, sculptor's studio and Grandview Terrace, sets the stage for quality viewing. Admission is free, but there is an $8 parking fee.
