  • Great little surprise during our visit to Nebraska. The lady inside was very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. We will have to visit again in the summer cause the whole trail was closed down! We still thuroughly enjoyed our visit!
  • This a neat place. The visitor center and the monument are focused on the Oregon-California-Mormon Trail period. The roadway to the top of the Bluff is great. The vistas from the top are outstanding. The trails leading back down are worth the effort. If you are up to it, go for it. Locals have built a Nebraska Pioneer farm tourist site right on the border of the national monument grounds. I have added a couple of photos of the red buildings at that site.
  • The only place in Nebraska with tunnel Bridges. Cool hiking. Neat little museum. Great views. Been there 5-6 times
  • Beautiful Drive to the top going through 2 tight tunnels. Nice quick and informative hike with gorgeous views at the top. Great view of Oregon trail
  • Very nice hike in the national monument. The views are amazing and spectacular. Make sure you have enough time to spend here. The view is worth it.
