Scottsbluff is located in Scotts Bluff County 10 miles from the Wyoming state line between Gering and Mitchell along Highway 26 on the banks of the North Platte River near Lake Minatare and Lake Minatare State Recreation Area.

A fur trapper by the name of Hiram Scott gained a certain immortality by dying, alone and deserted by his companions, at the base of a magnificent formation of bluffs along the North Platte River about 1828. Many others died near this spot on the old Oregon and Mormon Trails, but it was Hiram Scott for whom Scotts Bluff, Scotts Bluff County, and the city of Scottsbluff have been named.
