Rushmore Tramway, Grille & Gardens

Keystone, SD

Rushmore Tramway Adventures’ Chairlift, Grille and Gardens top the list in Keystone attractions, just two miles from Mt. Rushmore.
Scenic Rushmore Tramway Chairlift will carry you up through the fragrant Ponderosa pines to the most picturesque of Black Hills gardens. Enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding scenery and a special view of the impressive Mount Rushmore formation. Treat yourself to an ice-cold beer or soda and order up a mouth-watering cheeseburger, brat or buffalo burger at the Garden Cafe. While your entrée is grilled-to-order you can explore the large and beautiful park area with its sparkling mica-laden walking paths, granite-bordered flower beds, lush lawn areas, scenic overlooks and soothing waterfalls. For the ultimate outdoor dining experience, choose a table in the shade of the garden or on one of the cafe decks, and prepare to dine with the presidents – that is, with a view of the famous “Faces” across the valley. Don’t forget your camera!
When ready to descend the mountain, ride the Chairlift smoothly back to street level, or hop in a sled and experience the thrill of the 2000-foot Alpine Slide. Back down at street level we offer yet more ways to play in the trees: an 800-foot Zipline and a 4-acre Aerial Adventure Park. Be sure to allow time to experience all of Rushmore Tramway Adventures – it’s monumentally fun!
