  1. Default Salt Lake City to Mt Rushmore


    I was wondering what is the best way to get from Salt lake city to mt Rushmore, and where would be some good places to stop at along the way. Also where would be the best place to camp along the way, aprox halfway, as we are planning on doing the trip over two days.

    Default Pathfinder Lake?

    The most direct route is about 660 miles and if you were going to do it in one day -- it would require about 12 hours of driving. I would suggest a stop over the night at Alcova (Pathfinder Lake) -- great fishing and scenic country. Here is a short field report (not RTA folks) but still a good choice.

    Once in the South Dakotas -- read this field report by Peter Thody!
