In Utah there are several hikes and geologic formations named Mollies Nipple. This hike, just south of Hurricane, is a steep and slippery 1200foot climb into the heat. There’s no shade and no comfort on this sunbaked hike, but the views from the top are inspiring and the workout is terrific. If you’re not too hot after scaling the 4524-foot peak, explore the splendor of the hidden canyon with pools and falls (or dry falls in late spring and summer). Budding geologists will marvel at the layers revealing 200 million years of change and seashells embedded in the canyon adjacent to Mollies Nipple.
