A hill is a landform that is elevated above the surrounding terrain, but is smaller than a mountain.

Hills vs Peaks, Ridges and Mountain Ranges

The distinction between a hill and a mountain is unclear and largely subjective, but a hill is usually considered to be less tall and less steep than a mountain.

Compared to a mountain, a natural=hill is less visually prominent. A hill may be a natural=peak or summit and might be a natural=ridge.

The difference between natural=hill and natural=peak is not clear, and the classification might be contended. Many hills might also be mapped as a linear feature with the tag natural=ridge, if the name of the hill does not refer to a single summit or peak.

Hills often have a lower height (ele=*), and may be less steep than a mountain. Note that "mountain" is not an established tag, but natural=mountain_range is in use for long ranges of several mountains and ridges.

Some mappers have attempted to use natural=hill for peaks with lower topographical prominence, however, this is not the most common meaning.

Only a small number of features hills have been mapped, compared to the established tags natural=peak and natural=ridge and tagging has not settled on a consensus.
