I know this is an old post, but Atchison, KS has some very steep hills (probably the steepest hills in the state).

Yeah, Dubuque, Iowa is a fairly small city of 58,000 people - but the elevation varies by over 400 feet. Areas near downtown have sheer bluffs over 200 feet high.

S. IL, Peoria IL, and NW IL are both hilly...the rest of the state not so much, but that's probably for the best since there's so much farming that goes on.

Grand Rapids is pretty hilly, especially going from Downtown to the East (Heritage Hill area).

I recall Manhattan, Kansas having some hills. It's apparently the largest town in the Flint Hills. It's now deemed a "metropolitan area" so possibly can be mentioned. Rapid City, South Dakota is apparently the main city of the Black Hills. Mostly the topic seems well covered.
