Logger's Lake, an amazing world within an extinct volcano, now filled with water in the deep forest hidden above Cheakamus River. Almost perfectly round, the lake fills the beautifully cartoonish looking, volcano-shaped bowl. One side a crumbling array of enormous boulders cascading into the lake. Logger's Lake was a volcano that formed in this valley about 10000 years ago. As the lava cooled it formed into the distinct basalt ridge that is crumbling so dramatically into valley.
As Logger's Lake sits deep in this ancient volcano's vent, it is sheltered from the wind and soaks up the suns rays into the dark boulders all around. As a result makes it the warmest lake in Whistler, though most other lakes around are glacier fed(via rivers and creeks), so the comparison is not entirely fair. The surrounding cliffs and forest also add to the tranquility of the lake. Located a bit off the radar for most and requiring a short logging road drive and then a very steep, but short hike to get to also contributes to its serenity.
This serenity is broken at least once a year, however, when a new tradition formed in 2012. A yearly "Flash Mob Floatie Party" began, where hundreds congregate at Logger's Lake, most with rubber boats for an outdoor party, DJ an all. But aside from that one hilarious day, Logger's Lake is a secret-feeling oasis. Another, though unexpected draw to Logger's Lake, is its good fishing. Occasionally the lake is stocked with rainbow trout and because of the steep shoreline, casting from almost anywhere along the shore is easy and effective. There is also an ancient and disintegrating log that is a pier of sorts that leads to a tiny wooden platform out in the lake. A good spot to cast from as well, though you will be standing in a centimetre of water as the platform partially sinks under your weight.
Logger's Lake has a surprisingly large network of hiking trails around it. As the area was logged quite extensively in past decades, you often hike along trails near the lake that are in fact overgrown logging roads. The ridge directly behind you, if you are facing Logger's Lake and the log pier is an excellent place to hike. Appropriately named the Crater Rim Trail, this trail takes you quickly up to a tremendous vantage point over the lake.
