The trajectories of a single charged particle in relation to the cusp axis and cusp plane in a cusped magnetic field are numerically studied. The results show that the particle reflected by the cusp field forms a double helix; i.e., the helix itself makes a helical motion. The location of the reflection point extends well into the injection side of the cusp plane, suggesting that a diverging magnetic field of appropriate geometry may be able to reflect a charged particle. However, the location of the reflection point does not alter the nature of the trajectory
