Trail Overview

This trail combines three BLM trails and goes up to "The Nipple" from the west side. You arrive at the highest point (6,790 feet) overlooking Marysvale and the Sevier River. Then the trail goes down off the east side of The Nipple towards Marysvale. There is room for several vehicles to line up for a great photo at the top of the trail that goes off the east side. It's a steep climb up to the top, regardless of which side you climb, but the views are magnificent. The trail down to the east is also steep, but it's not hard if you take it slow. The east side is steeper than the west. Local high school kids placed a recliner on top of "The Nipple" but you need rappelling gear or a ladder to get up to it.

Difficulty

The trail has very steep terrain with some loose rocks. There are some embedded rocks to cross, but they're not over 12 inches or difficult.
