Mollie's Nipple (also spelled Mollies Nipple, without an apostrophe) is a basalt-capped hill that rises more than 1,300 feet above the surrounding plain in Utah’s Hurricane Valley. The hill is actually a butte — an isolated hill with steep sides and a small flat top — and like most buttes with a gradually slopping base and small peak, resembles the female anatomy. It is said that John Kitchen, a pioneer of an early exploration of Utah, upon seeing the hill was so filled with memories of his wife Molly, that he named the peak as a complement to his wife’s body part.
