The route climbs steadily to gain about 700 feet of elevation over the first two miles, passing through patches of pinyon pine woodland and Arizona chaparral bush. At about the two-mile mark, you will be high on the crest of the Cerbat Mountains, with spectacular panoramic views of the Black Mountains to the west, and the Music Mountains to the east. Hikers continuing on from this point will find that the trail ties into a litttle-used jeep road about one-quarter mile later. Following the jeep road for a short distance, you will be just below Cherum Peak summit. The trail once again becomes a single track at this point, leading to the summit. Horses and mountain bikes are not recommended on the last 1/4 mile of the trail leading to the peak.

Access Info

On Highway 93, 20 miles north of Kingman at milepost 51, BLM's Big Wash Road heads northeast. Follow this dirt road about 13 miles, past Windy Point and Packsaddle recreation sites. The Cherum Peak trailhead will be located on your left, just before the road begins to descend steeply toward Chloride. Park alongside the road, not blocking traffic. High clearance vehicles are recommended on Big Wash Road, although four-wheel drive is not necessary. Higher elevations of this road may become impassible during periods of snow or prolonged rainfall. You can also park at the bottom of Big Wash Road and pedal the to the top and back down for 28 miles and 4,500 feet climbing!
