I haven't hiked any trails in BB for about 20 years.   I don't see the Emory Peak trail or others I seem to recall on BB National Park Website.  Is Lost Mine the only open trail?

This map includes all of the backcountry roads and trails in the entire park.

I'm glad I read this link! ... I was looking for a good map of the general area to supplement the hiking trail map I already downloaded.
