there's also a trail connecting Juniper Flat with the Lost Mine Trail.

That looks like the Kibbey Spring trail.

After studying my topo map, I'd say you're right. The map spells it "Kibbe". Do you know which is correct?

I haven't looked at the topo map, I was relying on my memory  :?

If it's Kibbe on the map, then that's probably correct.

I have a map of an area in South Dakota that has a feature mis-labeled. It's supposed to be called Eye of the Father, or something to that effect. However, they transposed a couple of letters, so it actually translates to "Eye of the Potato", or something equally ridiculous.
Anyway, I don't assume the map is always right. Thanks Joe! :D
