Willow Creek Falls

Willow Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This trail offers a pleasant day hike through aspen-bordered parklands, with views of spectacular reefs along the way and a striking series of waterfalls at the end of the hike. The trail begins by following the fence around the Rising Ranch, and soon makes its way to an ankle-deep ford of Willow Creek.

A bottomland meadow leads up to an old road grade, where the path climbs heartily to an elevated, grassy bench. Magnificent views of the reefs can be had as the trail climbs beside the fenceline."

Nice little hike with stunning views all around. The fall colors are pretty, we were up in late September. It had rained previous to our hike, which made for a bit of a muddy, slippery time of it, heavy use of pack animals contributes to the ruts in the trail. Gooder bang for your mileage though, would recommend.
A quick hike with stunning vistas of the plains. The 600' climb over the length of the trail will make you breath deeply if you are out of shape. But overall this trail is a nice 1 hour diversion. We only hiked to the falls. There is a grove of Aspens about a .5 mile into the hike that would be beautiful when the leaves are changing. Multi-use trail with evidence of extensive horse traffic. Especially during hunting season. We were not sure about passing through the gate with the car to park at the trail head. But we did a quick recon and realized that the trail head parking is behind the metal gate.
