Long before fur traders and gold seekers arrived to exploit the country's resources First Nations people made the Similkameen Valley their home. The present Skyline Trail was a well-used travel route.
When the Oregon Treaty established a new international boundary between the United States and Canada and prevented the Hudson's Bay Company fur traders from continuing their use of the Columbia River as a transportation route, it was necessary for the traders to open up overland communications between the interior and the coast. The company commissioned Alexander C. Anderson to find a route over the Cascade Mountains, which he did with the assistance of First Nations guides creating a fur brigade route from east of Hope to the Tulameen River.
After gold was discovered along the Similkameen River and Rock Creek the major influx of fortune seekers created a need to keep goods and money flowing exclusively on the Canadian side of the border. Hence, in 1860, British Columbia's Governor Douglas commissioned the surveyor Edgar Dewdney and the Royal Engineers to build a pack trail that would be entirely on Canadian territory.
After one year, the Dewdney Trail was completed from Fort Hope to Rock Creek and became an invaluable transportation route for the next twenty years. Pack loads of provisions moved inland and the interior's riches in fur and gold were moved out. Today's Hope-Princeton Highway (Highway 3) closely follows the general direction of the Dewdney Trail.
By the 1890s the gold rush was over and the next wave of traffic came into the area, namely homesteaders and trappers, men and family who wanted to live off the land. Paul Johnson was the first white man to trap extensively in the Manning Park area and over the next three decades the trapping rights to this area were passed on to others.
The present day rights belong to the Hilton family, modern day pioneers of Manning Park. Joseph Hilton, one of the park's first Park Rangers, held it for the longest time and eventually passed it on to one of his grandsons who still maintains the trapping rights to this day.
The next phase of this history begins with the establishment of Manning Park. The Three Brothers Mountain Reserve was created in 1931 in order to save the alpine meadows from overgrazing by domestic sheep. Five years later the area was partially included in a new game reserve. Finally in 1941 the reserve was declared a Provincial Park and named "Ernest C. Manning Park" in memory of the then Provincial Chief Forester who had been killed in a plane crash. Manning was a dedicated conservationist who spent his life working for the preservation of the Canadian natural heritage. Because of his foresight in recognizing the recreational value of forested areas, all park lands came under the jurisdiction of the Forest Service. This northern Cascade park contains more than 71,300 hectares (176,000 acres).
Robert H. Boyd was the first Park Ranger. He and the dedicated rangers who followed him initiated the many projects that helped to form the park as it is today. When the Hope-Princeton Highway opened in 1949 it not only provided a major transportation link between the coast and interior it also made accessible to people everywhere, the premier provincial park in British Columbia.
