The Crater Rim and Farside Loop trail is located in the Whistler Interpretive Forest, just outside the Whistler Olympic Village. The trail loops around Loggers Lake, a beautiful lake situated right inside of a 10,000 year old extinct volcanic crater.

The trail was really beautiful but I couldn’t complete the loop due to heavy snow and unsure of logger Lake was safe to walk on.

This was a great trail with great views but if you do the 8km loop as pictured in the app - I would call it a moderate trail for sure, not easy. Definitely steep sections and it's a good workout overall.

Good views but the loop was not straight forward

This is one of my favourite afternoon hikes in Whistler. You gets a bit of everything: forest walking, some ascents and descents, a lake, beautiful views and the feeling that you've done some exercise if you only have a few hours to spare. It's a little gem well worth doing! Park at the Interpretive Forest and walk along the Riverside Trails for a pleasant and longer loop.

Great easy hike with beautiful white water views all along the way. We combined the riverview trail with crater rim and it was 6 miles.

Really nice trail. Had a lot of snow at the higher elevations but still hikable in boots. Several trail runners passed by us. Skipped the left turn after the suspension bridge due to deepening snow. Ended up at just over 4 miles.
