Take the drive, learn the history, see the static displays, go to the top and take in the vistas. You will be amazed at the tenacity of the people who made the western trek. more »

Following the rivers they arrived on this pass that opened to them the way in the Rockies to California or Oregon. Very good explanations on the travel conditions.

Loved the drive to the top. Easy trails at the top to the scenic lookouts were paved making it much easier to watch for snakes. We saw none but we're still cautious. We saw signs warning that one of the main trails had a rock slide recently so the middle section of the trail was closed.

Scotts Bluff is a seemingly random 800-ft high mountain in the middle of the plains of Western Nebraska. The bluff has been an important stop along the Oregon trail. Like all National Park Service sites, Scotts Bluff is extremely well-maintained. I would highly recommend a visit if passing through the area.

We hiked the trail but were too late to do the drive. You have to be there by 5:30 to drive there scenic route. The trail was a good home though. Not paced but pretty well laid out. The Sunday was rather beautiful as well.

This was a great place to picnic and learn some history of our nation's westward expansion. The people were very informative and friendly. It was definitely worth the time.

I went to this place as a small child. The tunnels are still there and on excellent condition and it is fun to toot your car horn as you drive through each of the tunnels to reach the summit. There are hiking trails, but not all of them were open. There is a wonderful visitors center with relics and bits of historical information in each of the didplays.
