A volksmarch is a noncompetitive 3.1 mile (5 km) or 6.2 mile (10 km) walk. It’s not a pledge walk, it’s not a race, it is a fun activity you do with a club, with your family, with your pet, or all by yourself. Volksmarching got its name from its origins in Europe.

Can you see crazy Rushmore and Crazy Horse a day?
You can probably do the Presidents’ Trail, the artists studio and the museum at Mt. Rushmore in a few hours. An afternoon is plenty of time for Crazy Horse, even if you luck out and go on one of the days there is a special presentation.
Can you see Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse in 1 day?
Custer will take the better part of the day because the driving is slow if you want to take in all the beauty, so I’d probably do Mt. Rushmore and Custer in one day. I’d recommend at least 2 hours at Mount Rushmore, 2-3 hours going through Custer State Park and the Needles Highway, and then 1-2 hours at Crazy Horse.
Can you do Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse in a day?
You can see them both in the same day, although it can make more sense to group them on different days, depending on what else you plan to see in the area. Crazy Horse works well with Sylvan Lake, Needles Hwy and Jewel Cave. Rushmore works well with the Wildlife Loop, Iron Mt Rd and possibly Wind Cave.
