Note, at the entrance to Willow Creek trail you will see signs stating “no trespassing”. Jefferson County has easement rights to the dirt road for those on foot, bike or horseback, thus use of the dirt road up to and past Canyon Kids camp is legal and permitted.
This ride does not have a lot of adventure sectors (3), but they can be technically demanding – some double track, some single track, possibly loose, maybe rutted and some larger rocks (softball sized or better) and some up / down pitches in excess of 10 %. A ride for technically proficient rides.
