Crater Rim Trail

 

Before heading out to this place, I never knew a Whistler had its own crater lake ! It’s pretty cool to explore these new trails and learn new stuff ! The Crater Rim Trail is in Whistler Interpretive Forest and the trailhead is on the opposite side of the highway from Function Junction. The lake is named Logger’s Lake. The trail takes you through a boulder field and up to the crater rim and along the ridge. Eventually the trail makes its way down towards the lake. There are a number of viewpoints along the way.

The stats:

Distance: 11.2 km
Time: 4 hours
Low point: 611 m
High point: 925 m
Elevation gain: 314 m
Cumulative Elevation gain: 438 m
Trailhead: 50° 05’ 11.3” by  123° 02’ 9.8” (Google Map)

Before heading out on your hike, make sure you are well prepared. This means, having the TEN ESSENTIALS. It is also important to leave a trip plan (route details and estimated return time) with someone you trust.

Bring your smartphone, fully charged and put it in airplane mode while hiking. I always bring back-up battery packs for extra piece of mind. It is highly recommended that you bring a GPS device; I use my smartphone with a GPS app (Backcountry Navigator). The GPS will work in airplane mode. Learn how to use it before your hike.

For anyone new to hiking, there is a rule to which hikers follow; it is called “Leave No Trace” or LNT. The concept is generally to pack out what you pack in and respect nature, so all future visitors can enjoy what you have enjoyed.
To learn more about LNT, please check out this BLOG by a certified LNT Trainer.
