Input raster or feature destination data
A raster or feature dataset that identifies those cells from which the least-cost path is determined to the least costly source.
If the input is a raster, the input consists of cells that have valid values (zero is a valid value), and the remaining cells must be assigned NoData.

Input cost distance raster
The name of a cost distance raster to be used to determine the least-cost path from the destination locations to a source.
The cost distance raster is usually created with the Cost Distance, Cost Allocation or Cost Back Link tools. The cost distance raster stores, for each cell, the minimum accumulative cost distance over a cost surface from each cell to a set of source cells.
Input cost backlink raster
The name of a cost back link raster used to determine the path to return to a source via the least-cost path.
For each cell in the back link raster, a value identifies the neighbor that is the next cell on the least accumulative cost path from the cell to a single source cell or set of source cells.
A keyword defining the manner in which the values and zones on the input destination data will be interpreted in the cost path calculations.
The field used to obtain values for the destination locations.
Input feature data must contain at least one valid field.
Force flow direction convention for backlink raster
Specifies whether the input backlink raster will be treated as a flow direction raster. Flow direction rasters can have integer values that range from 0-255.
