cost-path tool returns one-cell result

Discussion created by erinwarford on Apr 11, 2012

I am attempting to run the cost-path tool to plot the least-cost path between two points. I have already run the cost-distance tool and the cost-backlink tool to generate those rasters, and they appear to have generated correctly. However, when I run the cost-path tool (with any of the three possible path types), it results in two paths which each have a count of 1 and a pathcost of 0. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I get the same results if the start and end points are feature points or if I convert them to a raster.

I will appreciate any help or advice. Thanks!
