Most people would guess Colorado, but it is Nevada, in the west.
Nevada has more than 300 named mountain ranges, all running north-south as part of the Great Basin complex. Elevations range from 2,000 to 3,000 feet. The state has the most number of peaks above 10,000 feet.
The highest peaks are in the "cold desert" climates of the White Mountains, near Mount Whitney, the highest point in the Lower 48 states, with Boundary Peak (13,145 feet); and Wheeler Peak (13,063 feet) in Great Basin National Park, near the Utah border to the northeast.

It seems to me that that the state with the most mountainous terrain would be the state that has the most mountain type terrain vs. Non-mountainous and my vote is West Virginia.  Not Colorado for sure lots and lots of plains, so mountainous terrain would only be say 60-70 percent.

Although it does not contain the highest mountains, nor is it a tourist trap, I would pick Pennsylvania. Its lush tree-covered mountains greet you on every inch of the state. Just gorgeous...
