    McBride

    (Pop. 745)

    Nestled between the rugged Canadian Rockies and the snowcapped Cariboo Mountains, McBride lies in the beautiful Mount Robson Valley, where the mighty Fraser River flows.

    Until the late 1960s, the Valley was only accessible by rail and remained largely isolated. Following the completion of the Yellowhead Highway in 1970, communities in the Robson Valley were more accessible. During the final decades of the twentieth century, the town saw the decline of the logging industry, and circa 2005 the town’s primary lumber mill closed. Currently, the town and surrounding Valley are transitioning from an industrial economy to a centre for tourism, culture, agriculture, and outdoor recreation.

    The surrounding Robson Valley is noted for its rich farmland, especially for root vegetables. The Rocky Mountain Trench peaks, the mild climate, good soil, an abundance of water, and rugged beauty attract visitors and residents. McBride is 717 m above sea level with an average annual temperature of 0.6°C with a yearly rainfall of 1,218 mm.

    BC Transit buses (twice weekly between Valemount and Prince George) and VIA Rail passenger trains serving the Robson Valley are resuming July 5 with one train per week each way between Jasper, Harvey, Dunster, McBride, Goat River, Loos, Dome Creek, Bend, Penny, Prince George and Prince Rupert.

    McBride on Yellowhead Highway 16 is 210 km east of Prince George, 120 km west of the Alberta border, and 166 km west of Jasper, Alberta.
