Located in the Victoria Cross Ranges, Mount Mahood is above Miette Lake at the headwaters of the Miette River. The peak is named after Canadian Pacific Railway engineer, land surveyor, and explorer James Adams Mahood [1840–1901], born in New Brunswick, who was a member of the 1872 party of Sandford Fleming [1827–1915] that did the initial surveys for the CPR. Mount Mahood and Mahood Lake are also named after him.
