During a 1909 trip across the Yellowhead Pass with Stanley Washburn, Lacombe guide Fred Stephens examined a reportedly excellent stand of timber in the upper Fraser River valley. It was found to be completely burnt over.
The hill was named by the interprovincial boundary survey party of Wheeler and Cautley in 1921.
