Where are the mountains in Nebraska?
Technically, there is not a mountain range in Nebraska. In the panhandle (west side) of the state there are the Wildcat Hills and the Scottsbluff National Monument, which is made up of a collection of bluffs.

yes it has mountains There is some rugged county near Wildcat Ridge in northeastern Nebraska, but they do not qualify as mountains. There is a mountain range that begins near Omaha and Lincoln in Nebraska, goes south through all of Kansas to an area near Oklahoma City. However it is buried …, and not visible from ground level It is called the Nemaha Ridge and is the source of most of the minor earthquakes in Nebraska and Kansas. Recent announcements indicate that it appears to be a source of rare earth elements that are critical to the manufacture of computers, disk drives, cell phones and many other items that the economy is becoming dependent on. More detailed information on, and maps of, the Nemaha Ridge can be found at the Kansas Geological Survey, and in the Google books copy of the "Proceedings of the Oklahoma Academy of Science, Volumes 1-3," By Oklahoma Academy of Science, University of Oklahoma.

Nope. The closest they come is where they pass through Wyoming and Colorado.. Although the Rockies are not in Nebraska, there is a low protruding section of geologic uplift approximately 20 miles south of Harrison, Nebraska on both the Wyoming and Nebraska sides of the border between the two states…. It lies approximately 70-80 miles directly south of the center of the Black Hills of South Dakota, and could very well have been formed by the same actions that created the Black Hills. Huge boulders of granite can be found among these sections of uplift, resting among low cliffs of granite. The area is very sparsely populated although privately owned by cattle ranchers so permission must be granted prior to any attempts to explore. Had this geolical uplift continued for many more millions of years it would have eventually become a true mountain range in western Nebraska.. This uplift is not related to the Pine Ridge escarpment or Wildcat Hills escarpments as those two ridges were formed by an accumulation of sedimentary deposits over a period of millions of years as the Rockies were being formed and erosional forces carried sediments eastward to the Nebraska Panhandle as well as parts of southeastern Wyoming and southwestern South Dakota. Eventually wind and water eroded the softer landscape around the two ridges leading to their current state. (MORE)

Not really. Nebraska is in what we call the Great Plains of the central United States. There are some "hills" there, mostly in what is called the panhandle. That's the western part of the state which is above Colorado and adjacent to Wyoming. But there aren't really any mountains per se in Nebrask…a. Just some areas of somewhat higher elevation. The Rocky Mountains begin farther over to the west from Nebraska. The Missouri-Mississippi waterway is along its eastern border, and there are no dramatic changes of elevation there.. The elevation of the state is generally about 4,400 feet above sea level, and the highest point in the state is Panorama Point, at about 5,400 feet. A 1,000 foot mountain is still a thousand feet high, but it isn't a mountain to anyone who has see, say, the Rocky Mountains, which are a few hundred miles to the west. (MORE)
