I added a FAQ entry for this:

3.5. Which log files can I delete safely?

The best way to maintain Squid log files is to send the
squid process a USR1 signal. This causes the current log
files to be closed and renamed. You can then remove any of
the old log files. Also see the 'logfile_rotate' line in

The only log file you should NEVER delete is the file clev-
erly named "log" which normally exists in the first
'cache_dir' directory. This file contains the meta data
needed to rebuild the cache when squid starts up. Deleting
this file effectively wipes out your cache.
