Pine Pass, elevation 874 m, crosses the continental divide northwest-southeast in northeastern BC. The Pine River rises southwest of the pass then flows northwest to meet the Peace River, near Fort St John. The most northerly and lowest of the 6 highway passes through the ROCKY MOUNTAINS, it was known by whites as early as 1806, when one of Simon FRASER's men deserted and travelled this way. Joseph Hunter "rediscovered" the pass in 1877 as a possible CPR route. Hart Hwy crosses it, linking Prince George and Dawson Creek.
