This is pretty exciting news for the Valley
... See MoreSee Less

EXCITING NEWS The Robson Valley Mountain Bike Association is pleased to announce the completion of three new trails. The trails can be accessed from the parking lot on Rainbow Road FSR at Kilometre 1 for hikers and cross-country mountain bikers, or Kilometre 3 for downhill mountain bikers. The new trails should be fun for snowshoeing also. The first new trail, Jackpot, is three kilometres in length and intermediate in grade. This machine built trail is a heart pumper on the way up, fun and flowy on the way down. Smooth and curvy, this trail climbs briefly through a dense cedar forest and then opens up through a mixed stand of spruce and deciduous trees. The second trail, Ragged, can be looped with the proceeding trail to create a five kilometre loop. Mostly hand-built by volunteers for intermediate downhill mountain bikers, this trail begins with some smooth bermed corners, passes through some giant fir trees, descends through some fun rocky sections, and finishes with some smooth, rollable jumps and corners. The third new trail, Outrun, is an easy trail approximately one kilometre in length. The trail is straight and fast, climbing gradually. Eventually this trail will be looped and linked with others to extend the trail network. Creation of these trails was made possible through generous funding from Northern Development Initiative Trust, McBride Community Forest, the Regional District of Fraser Fort George, and Recreation Sites and Trails. Gratitude to our talented and industrious workers – Jr. Walker Contracting and Specialized Forest Management, as well as to volunteer trail builders.

Something rare to check out when visiting McBride this summer. Find out more about it at the Visitor Centre in the Train Station
... See MoreSee Less

"Tipped Rock" McBride has been keeping a little secret which only a small handful of people know about. Its has something that most people have never even heard about or at least thought about. There is a reason why the geologists and glaciologists come to our beautiful valley on a regular basis. They are here to study a very rare find. This is one of the only places, on earth, known where this has been found above the ocean floor. This rare item can be found high up in the mountains up the South Dore near the headwaters of the Cariboo River. It's located at an altitude of nearly 6000ft at the base of Roberts Glacier. The photo below shows a rock that was discovered a number of years ago when Roberts Glacier receded and exposed it. Normally this rock is found on the ocean floor. Somewhere along the way the rock heaved and tipped on its side to expose the various sediment layers that were formed over the centuries. **You will notice how the layers are lying side by side. The Ozalenka Alpine Club is waiting the approval of a new cabin to be placed near the “Tipped Rock” and the base of Roberts Glacier This is just another good reason why we need to help promote our beautiful and unique valley.

A little about our home
McBrides Heritage Railway Station
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company laid out the townsite in a standard GTP design with the station as the focus of Main Street, flanked by two parks, and it remains the same to this day. The present station was completed in 1919 on the sturdy foundations of the original, which was lost to fire in 1918.

Meeting the passenger train was major entertainment for villagers. With rail as the only viable way in and out for many years, the station was where one went to wait for the mail, ship milk and cream, pick up supplies, send a telegram, have a good feed at the 24-hour Beanery Restaurant, or just catch up on gossip.

Canadian National, owner of the railway, moved the last of its operations out of the building in 1989. The Canadian government designated the station a heritage building, and the Village of McBride purchased it in the early 1990s.

Much of the ground floor of the station has been renovated along 1920 lines with locally grown and milled wood. The station is again a gathering place, the home of the Visitor Information Centre and a new beanery. The art gallery is an attraction with work by local artists and artisans, and VIA Rail’s year-round passenger trains continue a century of service to McBride.

Tara Brenton-MelansonDon't waste your time at the Beanery. Friendly as a bag of Vipers. They close at 5pm and maybe their service is ok from open until 3:30pm but from 4-5pm they may as well stand at the door holding it open for you to leave. Can't believe we drove out of our way to get there. Live and Learn I guess.

Robson Valley Visitor CentreHi Tarra. Please accept our apology for the unfortunate treatment, while visiting our town and please be assured that not all of McBride is like that. We are sorry that after planning your trip to include McBride and had a very unpleasant reception. Once again, we are very sorry.
