The range trends north-south, and is composed of granite in its central highest portion. The valley to the east is Snake Valley and to the west is Deep Creek Valley. Nearby communities include Callao, Utah to the east and the community of Ibapah and the lands of the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation to the west.

The highest point in the range is the deep Creek Ibapah peak, an ultra noticeable peak, which rises to 12.087 feet 3.684 m. Other peaks: the peak of hay on 12.020 feet 3.660 m and Red Mountain, on 11.588 feet 3.532 m. the Range is the source of several perennial streams and supports a diverse coniferous forest, with the "island" Alpine tundra on the highest peaks. The range has a vertical relief of 7.800 feet 2.400 m above the salt flats of the Great Salt lake desert lying to the northeast and rises about 6.000 feet 1.800 m above the semiarid plains to the West.
