Helm Creek Crossover Trail

The 12.0 Kilometer BC Parks grade Helm Creel Trail consists of trail, beaten path in woods and raised roadbed in meadows. It is mostly flat, with one steep section at the far north end of the trail.  There is now a Footbridge across the Cheakamus River. 

Route: This trail traverses the subalpine meadows around Black Tusk from near Garibaldi Lake right down into the old growth forest in Helm Creek, linking up with the Cheakamus Lake Trail. 

Trail Description:

From the north, go along the Cheakamus trail untill you see a turnoff to the right.  Go down to the metal footbridge, cross it and follow the trail steeply up through the trees.  Eventually you will get above tree line and go past Black Tusk on the east. You are supposed to camp in designated spots.  Eventually after going through the alpine pass, the trail merges with Black Tusk trails at Jct 54.

If instead, you start from the south end, get to the start of the trail by hiking the first 6km of the Garibaldi Lake trail, and bear left at the first major junction to Taylor Meadows Campground.
