Robson Valley TourismNever thought we would be so happy to see the rain here in the valley. But due to the fires, we are feeling pretty happy about it. We just hope all the areas of the forest fires are getting rain and plenty of it.

Robson Valley Tourism shared a McBride Evacuee Comfort Centre.

In these stressful times of uncertainty, its good to know there is a place here in McBride that you can find comfort. If you are an evacuee and just need a little support, or to use a washroom or grab a bite to eat. Please go and check out McBride Evacuee Comfort Centre's facebook page.

Robson Valley Tourism in McBride, British Columbia.

Need something to do while visiting McBride?
McBride Peak
McBride Peak offers a panoramic view of the Robson Valley and the village of McBride. A fire lookout, built in 1930, is located near the peak. Building materials for it were hauled up by packhorses on the steep mountain trail. A second building at the Halfway Viewpoint provided an overnight stop for staff going to the top, and served as a lookout during spring before snow melted at higher elevations. Built by the industrious Fred Koeneman, this historic cabin still overlooks McBride and Fred’s homestead (now Koeneman Park). The Halfway site, maintained by Recreation Sites and Trails BC (RSTBC) and the McBride Community Forest, offers picnic tables, fire rings and a pit toilet. The road is steep with several switchbacks, so 4WD is recommended. Visitors are reminded to use their gears when descending, to avoid burning out the brakes. Should you choose to hike, from the base it is 5.5 km to the Halfway Cabin, another 5.5 km to the top.

Bruce WillsThe hockey tournament in McBride circa 1984 was probably the last time I got absolutely plastered on beer thanx to Wayne Pedersen our superb goalie & CKPG radio personality from Prince George and the seemingly never-ending discussion regarding the setting of the motel's alarm clock. Nice town, nice people, great location!

McBride's second Golden Raven Attraction is the Whistlestop Gallery. This gallery is located in McBride's historic train station which was built in 1919 as a Grand Trunk Pacific Railway divisional point. Admire original artwork created by various artists while browsing photos and artifacts from McBride's past. You can also pick up a tasty treat or cup of coffee from The Beanery, located in the same station. Thanks to Golden Raven Attractions, Regional District of Fraser Fort George, and 6ix Sigma Productions for making this entire video series possible. Northern British Columbia
