  • Site Description:A large forested area of Crown Land, just over 2800 hectares, nestled between Garibaldi Park and Whistler's Function Junction. This area was once an active logging area, it is now an interepretive forest, full of hiking and biking trails, with interpretive signs for the public to learn about forestry related topics (ecosystems, wildlife, landscape history). A great place for many day hikes. Access to East Jane Lake trail and Cheakamus Lake Trail, into Garibaldi Provincial Park. Loggers Lake is popular for fishing, about an 8 minite walk uphile from the car park along the rough dirt road. The lake is located inside a volcanic crater. Three Forest Service roads take you to many km's of trails with various natural destinations. A suspension footbridge over Cheakamus river offers great views of the canyon. Adjacent to the Cheakamus Crossing neighbourhood in Whistler.

  • Driving Directions:On HWY 99, at the last traffic lights on the south end of Whistler, turn west at "Function Junction". Large parking area on corner of HWY and side road, you can drive up Cheakamus Lake Forest Service road to access Garibaldi Park's Cheakamus Lake Trail.
