Mollies Nipple Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Grand Staircase province of the Colorado Plateau displays a classic cliff and terrace landscape that is remarkably uniform, rising from the Arizona Strip to southern Utah’s Pink Cliffs in a series of risers (cliffs) and steps (terraces). Punctuating this uniform landscape, the landmark cone of Mollies Nipple is an anomaly, a mountain-like peak standing alone in a land of mesas, cliffs, and canyons.
Composed of very resistant beds of Navajo Sandstone, Mollies Nipple has been eroded into a great cone that is one of the Colorado Plateau’s most distinctive landmarks. This cone stands out in views from overlooks in Bryce Canyon National Park, and from US 89 between Kanab, Utah, and Page, Arizona."
