Lost Mine Peak, though not as well known as Emory Peak, is the second highest peak in Big Bend National Park. At 7,550 ft, as listed by the National Park Service ( I have, also, put down the 7535' elevation from National Geographic Topo), Lost Mine is only 275 ft shorter than Emory. Follow Lost Mine trail until you see a vague herd path cutting NE towards your destination.A short bushwhack and steep 4th class final pitch leave this lofty and beautiful peak climbed by less than 10 people a year.
