The trail ascends steadily to gain around 700 feet 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.
