Grissom Hill, named after American astronaut Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, is one of the three Apollo 1 Hills on the planet Mars. It was discovered by the Spirit rover, and named on January 27, 2004 – the 37th anniversary of the Apollo 1 launchpad fire, which claimed Grissom's life, along with other crewmembers Ed White and Roger Chaffee.

The hill lies to southwest of the Columbia Memorial Station, where the Spirit rover landed.
