By 1892, Canadian Pacific Railway surveyor James Adams Mahood [d. 1901] had cut a trail past Indianpoint Lake on his way to Tête Jaune Cache, where he was to meet Alfred Richard Cecil Selwyn’s Thompson River party, but a few months later the CPR chose a route far to the south and the trail fell into disuse.
