The entrance back onto the trail and into the forest is assisted by an old, tattered sign marking the way to Helmet/Ochre Creek, Tumbling Creek and Helmet Falls campgrounds. Walk up a stairway of recycled railway ties, and within five minutes you will come across another sign. As it suggests, stay straight on the path. The path now climbs slightly, crossing a couple of minor feeder streams before levelling again. You then come to a splendid, wide, long avalanche slope of shrubs and flowers, at the 3.5-km mark of the trek.
Head back into the pine and spruce forest at the far edge of the slope, but before you do this, stop and look around. Have a gaze up the hillside and down toward the creek below. Try to imagine the force of rushing, crashing snow that could mow down a forest, removing all evidence of sturdy trees, leaving brush, shrubs and flowers to flourish in their stead. Now, back into the forest, you will encounter a small intersection within six to eight minutes. There are a few signs and directions here, so pay close attention to ensure you take the correct path. Turn left at the junction and follow this path for 400 m. Cross Ochre Creek on a suspension bridge to a very primitive campground on the riverbank. Tent pads dot the shoreline and there’s a privy along a trail into the forest. The place does not appear to have any bear poles.
