Trails
Within the Kingman Field Office

Cherum Peak Trail

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:  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.

GENERAL LOCATION, DIRECTIONS and TRAIL MAP:

TRAIL DISTANCE:  2.5 miles

DIFFICULTY:  Moderate for hikers; difficult for mountain bikers due to elevation gain; foot access only at the peak.

TRAIL TYPE:  Non-motorized; hiking, biking, horseback

BEST SEASON:  September through June; road conditions permitting.

ELEVATION:  6,000 feet (trailhead); 6,983 feet (Cherum Peak summit)

RELATED LITERATURE:  None

Mohave & Milltown Railroad Trails

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:  The M&M Railroad Trails are intertwined as they follow the route of an historic railroad grade.  Hikers and mountain bikers travel along the actual railroad grade for most of the way, although detours are sometimes necessary where the grade has washed away from flooding.  OHV and equestrian users follow a route which does not lie on the grade, but parallels and frequently crosses the railroad bed.  Both routes are marked with signs and rock cairns to keep visitors on course.

GENERAL LOCATION, DIRECTIONS and TRAIL MAP:

TRAIL DISTANCE:  Both trails are about 7 miles long

DIFFICULTY:  Easy for all types of use.  Mountain bikers may have to walk bikes through the loose sand of wash crossings.

TRAIL TYPE:  The trail that lies on the actual railbed is limited to use by hikers and mountain bikers.  Off-highway vehicles and horseback users are requested to use the parallel trail, specially-designed for those uses.

BEST SEASON:  Anytime from September through May.  In the event of plentiful winter rain, wildflowers can be abundant February through April.

ELEVATION:  850 feet to 1,960 feet

RELATED LITERATURE:  None

Wabayuma Peak Trail

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:  The first two miles of Wabayuma Peak Trail follow an old jeep road into the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness.  At about the two mile mark, you will find yourself in a saddle; a wire fence will be on your left.  Look for the narrow path heading up the slope.  Near the top of the ridge, the trail becomes faint, but blaze marks on large ponderosa pine will serve to guide you to the top.  The trail ends in a saddle 1/2 mile south of the Wabayuma Peak summit; proceed cross-country to reach the peak.  Hikers must return the way they came.  The top of Wabayuma peak offers spectacular views of the Black Mountains to the west, the Aquarius Mountains to the east and of the Hualapai Mountain range to the north and south.

GENERAL LOCATION, DIRECTIONS and TRAIL MAP:

TRAIL DISTANCE:  2.5 miles one way

DIFFICULTY:  Moderate for hikers; difficult to extremely difficult for equestrians.

TRAIL TYPE:  Hiking or equestrian

BEST SEASON:  Late spring through fall.

ELEVATION:  6,047 to 7,601 feet

RELATED LITERATURE:  None
