The Myjava Hills (in Slovak, Myjavská pahorkatina) is an area of hills in western Slovakia, rugged highlands along the Myjava River composed of Carpathian flysch. Geologically it's one range of the Slovak-Moravian Carpathians of the Outer Western Carpathians.

The highest peak is Bradlo (543 meters above sea level), site of a monument to General Milan Rastislav Štefánik designed by Slovak architect Dušan Jurkovič. Three villages stand within the borders of the Myjava Hills: Myjava, Stará Turá, and Brezová pod Bradlom.
