Old, well-established name for this prominent feature clearly visible from McBride. (The Beaverview Campsite and Beaverview Lodge at the base of the mountain were so-named 50+ years ago because of their proximity to the feature). When viewed from the south, the rock formation at the summit resembles a perched beaver profiled against the sky. Area historians speculate that this rock formation is the reason that the adjacent Holmes River was first called "Beaver River".
