Cost Path Tool Usage Help

I'm have the following data:

  • Raster layer, cells have 1 of 2 values that represent either an obstacle or non-obstacle

  • Layer with single point feature (source)

  • Layer with single point feature (destination)

I'm trying to find the shortest path between the source and destination points while avoiding obstacles.  I tried creating a cost distance and cost backlink using the raster and the source point feature in ArcMap but the rasters I got had cells with 0 values only.

Am I doing something wrong? Should I be using the cost path tool for this?
