To get to the Nebraska-Colorado-Wyoming tri-state monument, you’ll have to drive down some private country roads. It’s recommended to plug the coordinates into your GPS rather than rely on Google Maps to guide you. When you see the windmill you’ll know you’re getting close.
Amazingly, the monument is located just 1.3 miles away from another significant place on Nebraska’s map: the highest point in the state. You can’t hike between the two because the high point is on an open bison range, but it’s worth the short drive since you’re already in the area. Read more about Nebraska’s high point right here.
