Located in the Victoria Cross Ranges, Mount Mahood is above Miette Lake at the headwaters of the Miette River. The peak is believed to be named after a CPR engineer, land surveyor, and explorer, James Adams Mahood, born in New Brunswick in 1840, who was a member of the Sandford Fleming party of 1872 that did the initial surveys for the CPR. Mount Mahood and Mahood Lake in central British Columbia are also named after him.
