The peak of Mount Robson is the highest in the Canadian Rockies, towering 12,972 feet (3,954 metres) over the western entrance to Mount Robson Provincial Park. Before the discovery of Mount Waddington on the central coast in 1925, Mount Robson held the distinction of being the tallest mountain in British Columbia. Mount Robson Park is the second oldest park in British Columbia, having celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2013. Located in east central British Columbia, just west of the British Columbia/Alberta border, the park contains the headwaters of the Fraser River and, in the northwest section of the park, the massive Berg Glacier, one of the few living (or advancing) glaciers in the Canadian Rockies.
