From May to October the fantastic trails around Logan Lake are shared by non-motorized transportation, so hike, bike or horseback ride while you enjoy nature. Mountain bike trails are currently under development and approximately 50km of trails will soon become available. The flashes of blue in the area are returning bluebirds nesting in the boxes along the trails. Please respect their nesting sites and just watch or photograph them. If you time it just right, you may luck out and catch some of the forty or fifty species of local wildflowers in bloom. Some of these are rare specimens so, please, take away photographs only.View Our Trails Map
This year you will notice three fire rings along the trails as well as more lean-tos and outhouses for hikers and those enjoying wilderness camping close to home. The energetic volunteers who build them are planning future log cabin construction for overnighters who want something more substantial than a tent. Stay tuned.
The trailhead begins at the TV repeating tower where you will find maps with named and marked trails to take along with you.
If you want more of a challenge, consult the Logan Lake Trail Map for access to the fire protection trails and the old, decommissioned logging and mining roads in the area. These trails wind their way through the hills surrounding the town and can run for hundreds of kilometres. Remember to prepare properly and keep your sense of direction.
As soon as the first snowfall settles on the hills surrounding Logan Lake, local volunteers and members of the Highland Valley Outdoor Association transform the landscape into a 36km. network of cross-country ski trails, including 2km of lit trails for night skiing. In the summer of 2015 the trail system was extended, new trails added and some existing ones widened for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The trail system begins in Logan Lake at the end of Chartrand Avenue and extends out into the surrounding forest. Trails are groomed for both classic and skating techniques. The ski season usually starts in the first week of December and continues through March, weather permitting.
In April or May, as soon as ground conditions allow, the trail system is open for summer use. These trails are ideal for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. Section 58 Motorized Vehicle Closure on trail system all year. This system is an unmonitored facility, use at your own risk.
These trails are carry-in/carry-out so please remember to pack out all your garbage. Also, you will need to bring your own equipment for whichever activity you want to participate in, as there are not yet any rental facilities in Logan Lake.
