I will introduce HELIX (High Energy Light Isotope eXperiment), a near-future balloon-borne experiment designed to improve our understanding of the propagation of Galactic cosmic rays by measuring the key clock isotope 10Be up to 10 GeV/n. I will also present the Galactic gamma-ray measurements from the VERITAS experiment, an imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescope measuring gamma rays with energies higher than 85 GeV and up to ~ 30 TeV. Focusing on the supernova remnants, I will discuss what we have learned about the acceleration of high-energy particles and what we expect to learn in the near future. Finally, I will highlight how neutrino observations with IceCube, in coordination with gamma-ray and cosmic-ray direct measurements, will broaden our perspective on the production and propagation of high-energy particles and advance us toward a new paradigm of Galactic cosmic rays.
