The Cricket Mountains rise to peaks ranging from the 6,000-foot (1,800 m) elevation to its highpoint of Headlight Mountain, 6,749 feet (2,057 m), in the extreme southwest of the range. The Cricket Mountains are bordered by the Sevier Desert on the east, north, and west, where the Sevier River flows west then southwest into Sevier Lake, on the range's west border.
The southwest of the range merges into the northeast of the San Francisco Mountains, a slightly smaller range. Both ranges trend southwesterly x northeast, presumably part of Basin and Range block faulting.
