The McBride graticule is located at 53,-120 and covers the northern end of what locals call the Robson Valley. It includes a large chunk of the only inland rainforest in the world (including some stands of "antique" forests)[1], some of the western side of the Canadian Rockies, some of the Cariboo Range, part of the renowned Bowron Lakes canoe circuit, and the historic Goat River Trail [2]. The primary community is McBride but there are smaller settlements at Goat River, Loos, Crescent Spur, Walker Creek, and part of Dome Creek, most settled when the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad punched through in the 1910s.
