Directly behind the Hurricane, UT airport and at the end of the subdivision is a gravel pullout near the mouth of Frog Canyon. A hikers use trail leads up the ridge line to the plateau.

The trail is steep in places and spiders often leading to view points or descending into Frog Canyon. Scree is common and spots can be quite slippery during the descent. Despite the route through minor cliff bands, the trail would carry a simple class 2 rating. The upper plateau is a nice stroll along a sandy trail spotted with lava rock. The rocky "nipple" top is truly an interesting geographic phenomenon.
