The difference between a hill and a mountain is that a hill is generally a smaller landform than a mountain. Both are elevated above surrounding areas but hills more often have gently slopping sides, while mountains can have steep sides, even sheer sides. Hills can be the remains of mountains that have been eroded over the ages.
