Towering a massive 800 feet above the North Platte River, Scotts Bluff is a landmark for our Native Americans to emigrants who braved the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails.
This area is rich in geological and paleontological history and human history, and there is much to discover while exploring the 3,000 acres of Scotts Bluff National Monument.
Both the Native Americans and, subsequently, settlers regarded this 1,200-hectare range of sculptural bluffs as a vital natural landmark.
In addition to museum exhibits, take a drive along Summit Road to the top of the bluff, hike up to Saddle Rock Trail or sign up for a ranger tour to understand more about this fascinating pioneer history.
