“A forested and rocky singletrack with ample stream crossings.”— Andrew Baranovic
Beginning with several switchbacks, Willow Creek Trail shows you its character right from the get go with steady, sustained rocks. Mix these in with a rapid loss of elevation and let the fun begin. Blind corners, parallel drainage ditches, and some loose sections add quite a bit of spice to the hike. The whole shebang ends rather abruptly at Palisades Campground.
For hikers paying attention, you'll know the end is close when the Palisades Trail branches off to the left.
Hiking this trail in the opposite direction can be done, but it is a bit rugged.
