A highlight of our trip to Gering, Nebraska, was our stop at Scotts Bluff National Park. The scenic ride to the top of the bluff as well as the views from the top are simply amazing. The natural beauty of the area will leave you refreshed and inspired.

Rich with geological and paleontological history as well as human history, there is much to discover while exploring the 3,000 acres of Scotts Bluff National Monument.
We started our visit browsing through the exhibits in the museum and watching the 12-minute video on the Oregon Trail. Next, some of our group drove to the top of the bluff, while a few others took off hiking to the top.
