Looking at this pass from the Moose River valley in 1911, Arthur Wheeler wrote, “On the Fraser Valley side brilliant red rocks are seen near its crest, and for this reason it has been christened the Red Pass. Later, it was examined from the Fraser side, and there seems to be no reason why a good pony trail cannot be built over it to give access to Resplendent Valley in one day from the railway.”
