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 the Ancient Forest, or take a multi-day trek along the Ozalenka Valley or Kristie Glacier. Mountain bike numerous logging roads, including steep climbs into the alpine at Mount Lucille, Bell Mountain, or McBride Peak. Avoid mountain biking in the high elevation meadows and alpine areas due to the fragile environment.
Climb solid mountain rock-faces, or paraglide from Mount McBride, 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.
