The Presidential Trail seems to be organized by perceived statue of the presidents. So Washington figures first, but stops for views of Lincoln come next. Adjacent to Lincoln is another butte, for potential future bust building. An interesting aspect of the Lincoln portrait is how the sculptor left the original butte more or less as is to serve as Lincoln's hair and beard.
