I have never used Least Cost Path before and the online help is WAY over my head.

Can someone please break it down for me how to find the Least Cost Path between 2 points?


The data I have to weigh this path is as follows:

One NED from USGS with elevation in meters.
2 points (My start and end points)
4 High Consquence areas polygons (ecological sensitive, drinking water, other populated, and highly populated)
