This summit is the highest point of a long ridge originating just West of Noonmark Mt. and including Dial Mt.. This ridge skirts the south side of the East Branch Ausable River whereas the Great Range skirts the North side. Nipple Top has a sharp small summit offering little space to hikers. From its summit, just below to the North, stands the Mt. Colvin bare summit where hikers can be seen. On the other side, to the South, is an impressive view of Dix Mt. with its many slides.
