Features -none-

Mountain bikes are not recommended on the last 1/4 mile of the trail leading to the peak.

Description

The trail ascends steadily to gain around 700' of elevation within the first couple miles, heading through swaths of pinyon pine woodland and Arizona chaparral bush. Near the two-mile mark, the trail continues along the ridge of the Cerbat Mountains, with magnificent 360-degree views of the Black Mountains to the west, and the Music Mountains to the east.

As it continues to climb, the trail joins a seldom-used jeep road after a quarter mile. The trail follows the jeep road for a hundred yards below the Cherum Peak summit. Continuing on, the trail narrows back into singletrack towards the summit.

If you are going to drive to the Cherum Trailhead, I would recommend a 4wd vehicle. Also drive up Big Wash road. It's safer than trying to drive up the mountain via the town of Chloride. Mar 17, 2017
