The climb after the bridge was way tougher than I thought it would be, but well worth it.
Lots of wild flowers and open views. The landscapes are gorgeous!
I did as a day-hike, but I believe you would enjoy a lot more if you camp at the Helm campground.

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.

So fucking good. Cold at night, even in August.
