Those who came by those routes, the busiest but war-ridden Okanagan Trail, also spread farther afield in the Interior, leading to gold discoveries further and further afield and a string of small and large gold rushes including what would become the largest and most famous, the Cariboo (Cariboo Gold Rush).

They span the border between the Canadian (Canada) province (Provinces of Canada) of British Columbia and the U.S. state of Washington (Washington (U.S. state)) and are officially named in Canada as the '''Cascade Mountains'''. They are predominantly non-volcanic, but include

the stratovolcanoes Mount Baker, Glacier Peak and Coquihalla Mountain, which are part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc (Cascade Volcanoes). The portion in Canada is known as the '''Canadian Cascades''', a designation that also includes the mountains above the east bank of the Fraser Canyon as far north as the town of Lytton (Lytton, British Columbia), at the confluence of the Thompson (Thompson River) and Fraser Rivers. Miners dominated the exploration and development of the range

; Discovery of gold by American prospectors on the banks of the Thompson River at its confluence with the Nicoamen River, at the northern tip of the range, helped trigger the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush of 1858-1860 which in turn prompted the declaration of the Colony of British Columbia to affirm British possession of territories north of the 49th Parallel. The Fraser rush led to exploration of the Cascades to the east of the canyon and in the valley of the Similkameen River

Lytton, British Columbia

'''Lytton''' in British Columbia, Canada, sits at the confluence of the Thompson River and Fraser River on the east side of the Fraser. The location has been inhabited by the Nlaka'pamux people for over 10,000 years, and is one of the earliest locations settled by non-natives in the Southern Interior of British Columbia (British Columbia Interior), having been founded during the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush of 1858–59, when it was originally known as '''"The Forks"'''. The community includes both the Village of Lytton and the surrounding Indian Reserves of the Lytton Indian Band (Lytton First Nation), whose name for the community is Camchin, also spelled Kumsheen ("river meeting").
