At the California Trail Interpretive Center you can learn about Scotts Bluff, one of the most famous California Trail landmarks and a welcome way-marker for emigrants. Ascending a little over 800 feet from the plains below, this historic and majestic bluff rose dramatically on the plains of Nebraska for early trail travelers, and also rose to prominence in the history of Westward expansion.
