The Fraser River Canyon was formed during the Micene period by the river cutting through interior plateaus on its way to the Fraser Valley. Between 1858 and 1860, the area was heavily mined by gold prospectors in what became known as the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. The Cariboo Wagon road was a road begun in 1860 that linked Yale to Barkerville in British Columbia. It was initiated by the then Governor of British Columbia, James Douglas (1803-77).
