  • This is well worth your stop. There is a museum and you can walk to where the wagon trains traveled. It was a little awe inspiring to think that we were standing where thousands of pioneers had once s...  more »
  • One of the community "gem's." Be sure to visit the museum. For those 62 and older, the National Park's Golden Age pass allows free admission. To walk up the road, you need to be down by 7 am. It is a ...  more »
  • Vis Center is a must-visit and see the short movie. Nice assortment of books re: Pioneers, Oregon Trail, Sioux Indians. Hike or drive to vistas. $5 a car!

  • June 2016: After a long drive from Wyoming, we got here before closing but literally 30 seconds after the "last time you can drive to the top off the bluff." (according to their watch) There was no wiggle room or leeway and we were literally within a 30 seconds margin of error. We were not allowed to even just drive up and back. The girl in the booth would not let us up. No discussion. We were able to get into the rather small visitor center but we felt like all they wanted us to do is leave so they could close before the posted closing time. Rather disappointing.
  • Do not miss this place if you are in the area! Beautiful view of Scottsbluff and Nebraska great plains. A small hike on the top of the road is cool and made for everybody! You will learn a bit of history at the visitor center.
  • My family has been visiting this monument as long as I can remember. It's absolutely amazing! You can either hike to the top or you can drive up. There is a lot of history there. The visitor center has some interesting artifacts from the trail days. The view of Scottsbluff and Gering from the top can leave you breathless. Definitely worth a stop!!
  • Out of nowhere, these beautiful bluffs invade the skyline before the flat farmland takes back over. You can hike up the bluffs and around them. There is even a tunnel carved out of the path you have to go through. If you don't want to hike, driving up is also an option. A remarkable stop many people have no idea exists.
  • A great place to visit with spectacular views. Never get tired of this place no matter how many times I've been here. Great hiking trails and love the tunnels.
