Mount Coolidge (6023 ft) is reached via backroads and has amazing views.
With good binoculars, telescope, or telephoto lens you can see most of the interesting geology of the area, at least enough to get interested in seeing more.

Harney Peak (7244 feet), the highest peak east of the Rocky Mountains, is generally accessible by foot trail, or a powerful lens. It is just outside Custer State Park.
The Needles are worth studying. They can be seen closer by taking the Needles Highway inside Custer State Park.
Crazy Horse is over 9 miles from Mt Coolidge. This picture from 2014 requires a steady tripod, a good camera, and a photgrapher that knows how to use them. Click the picture for a larger version or you can see an extra large version.
The best known Stone Carving (on a large scale) in the United States is certainly Mt Rushmore.
Is that an Eagle flying by? Click on the picture to see a larger version. That is true for ANY picture on TravelingMorgans.com
Seeing Mt Rushmore from many locations is recommended. Mt. Coolidge is one place. Iron Mountain Road is another.
Heddy Draw is across from the entrance to the Mt Coolidge gravel road.
