In combination with the public open houses that were held in March, Mount Rushmore National Memorial welcomes public comment on a proposed backcountry hiking trail using the National Park Service’s Park Planning website. The website,, contains information on the proposed trail plans, maps of the route and it provides an avenue for public comment on the project.

To make a comment online, please go to the planning website, search by park name “Mount Rushmore NMem” and click on the project title “Yellow Wolf Trail.” Comments can be made by clicking on “Open for Public Comment” and then following the prompts. The website is available for public comment until April 30.

The memorial is in the initial planning process for an Environmental Assessment on the proposed backcountry trail. Public comments received either at an open house or online will be considered for the development of the assessment.
