Notes

Willow Falls is a great hike!
I've been there twice this year and each time it was different. The flowers should be blooming and there are goats in the area. The falls and views of the cliffs are great.
This trail requires many creek crossings on log bridges and some muddy trail but all in all it has been in good shape this year.
It is a trail, but the ups and downs are not excessive.
We will determine when we get to the Falls if we want to see the upper and the lower Falls which is not too much more effort.
