The upper part of this mountain is Paleozoic limestone (Ordovician to Mississipian periods), sitting over a Paleogen formation. The usual explanation for this inversion is that a large sheet of Paleozoic rock slid over more recent sediments, tens of kilometers from northwest. Posterior erosion left this piece named Heart Mountain.
