Great hike with a spectacular view of the black tusk from the camp site. Continuing past the camp site you arrive in a beautiful alpine area with some “Martian” like terrain.

The first pitch after the river is quite steep and is a hard workout with a backpack full of camping gear. Afterward it levels out and makes for a peaceful hike through the forest. The helm creek campsite accessed via this trail is a great alternative to the other if Garibaldi campsites if they’re booked up.

Steady climb to hit the meadows - similar to the Garibaldi Lake trailhead access. Great camping at Helm Creek, makes for a solid base camp to hit Panorama Ridge or Black Tusk. Bring bug spray.

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.

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