The earliest settlers in the Valemount area traveled along the Columbia River and up the Canoe River, until they reached the Robson Valley.

During the Omenica Gold Rush of 1898, near Mackenzie, this was thought to be the best route to the goldfields from Golden, B.C. Some of the prospectors returned to settle in the valley to begin trapping the abundant fur bearing animals.
