A nice start to the full Willow Creek Trail
, this hike will take you to Angel Falls where you can picnic on the granite or continue your hike if you feel like a longer outing. Along the way, you may encounter a bit of poison oak along the trail, plenty of mosquitoes, and a few nude sunbathers. The water is extremely cold and fast, and the granite has been polished smooth by the water. Wear good shoes with tread on them and maybe consider some trekking poles as well.
