Best Whistler Aerial View Callaghan LakeCallaghan Lake is a stunning lake high up in the Callaghan Valley that you can drive to from Whistler Village in less than an hour.  The very potholed and waterbar strewn gravel road to get there ends at the Callaghan Lake Provincial Park campsite and shore of the lake.  Hardly any hiking trails exist at the lake itself, however trails are being planned for the near future.  There is an amazing trail that starts at the far end of the lake to Cirque Lake as well as a trail from the Callaghan Lake campsite to Ring Lake.

The Ring Lake trail takes you around Mount Callaghan to this beautiful mountain paradise while the Cirque Lake trail takes you far up alongside Mount Callaghan.  Most visitors to Callaghan Lake Provincial Park camp or stay close to the main campsite area and paddle around the lake.  The lake is surrounded by pristine wilderness and endless white capped mountains.  There are dozens of interesting places along the shore to pull up your canoe and explore the wilderness or just find a sunny hilltop for a picnic.  The right side of the lake is always sun facing and several rocky lakeside cliffs give you stunning views as well as a secluded oasis from the world.  Almost anywhere you enter the forest along the shore of Callaghan Lake you will find the forest wide open under the thick forest canopy.  Hiking through the forest is easy and quite beautiful.  Little ground level foliage and only fallen trees to scramble over as you explore a marvellously untouched mountain rainforest.  From the water, the shoreline looks thick with foliage and uninviting, but just metres in and you discover a beautiful hidden world.  Halfway along the right hand side of Callaghan Lake you will see some cliffs along the shore.  There you will find a quick route up to the top of the cliffs and a great place to view this amazing lake.
