Things to Do

In summer or winter, the McBride and surrounding Robson Valley landscape accommodates incredible outdoor adventure.
Hiking, birdwatching, and camping are warm weather options, while winter shifts to cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, ice-fishing, and snowmobiling.
Spend a day hiking in the Ancient Forest (Chun T’oh Wudujut) Provincial Park – a forest with attributes of both a coastal rainforest and a northern boreal forest that features some of the oldest and largest old-growth cedar trees in the province. Mountain bike numerous logging roads, including steep climbs into the alpine at Mount Lucille, Bell Mountain, or McBride Peak.
Climb solid mountain rock-faces, or paraglide off Teare Mountain, slowly descending 1,219m/4,000ft. For a more relaxing option, head out to King Creek Golf Course (15km/9mi east of McBride) for a day of 9-hole golfing.
