2017 Pilgrimage

The Rushmore Pilgrimage has been a tradition since 1938.  At the first hike, there were only the images of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln on the mountain.  The final carving, Teddy Roosevelt, was still under construction.  In past years we have had as many as 1,000 participants from Troops throughout South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Wisconsin and Iowa, just to name a few.

Come Hike the Faces 

Hikers depart from locations throughout the Black Hills, following the Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln Trails to Mount Rushmore.  Age appropriate trails for Webelos and Cub Scouts are also available
