Kootenay Trail and Moyie
Kootenay gold discoveries attracted thousands of prospectives from Washington Territory in late 1850's and 1860's. In those years all trails led South into Washington, Idaho and vast bulk of treasures and commerce enriched these areas. The need for an all British Route to business area of province was realized when Eggert Doodenay was commissioned to extend this famous trail East from Rock Creek. By 1865 this historic trail was completed. Although it follows the shores of this lake, it was not until 1883 that the town of Moyie came into being, after a magnificent body of silver orr was discovered. Today the Doodenay Trail has all but vanished but Moyie lives on.
