Description

Yes, you read that correctly. Seen from a certain angle, it does indeed look like a nipple. From a height of 1,408 meters (4619 ft), this mountain offers a unique panorama: on one side the superb Adirondack range and on the other the imposing Dix Mountain. On your way to the summit, you will have the opportunity to reach the peaks of two other mountains (Bear Den at 1043 meters / 3422 ft and Dial at 1225 meters / 4020 ft) all while crossing a ridge dotted with superb views. So spare your efforts and prepare yourself. C’est Notre Monde will take you on the long, demanding trail to Nippletop!
