Willow Creek Trail - #001
The Willow Creek trail is a fun singletrack trail in the area just east of Daniel's Summit (near Strawberry Reservoir). This trail is suitable for beginners but satisfying for skilled riders. Slopes are gentle and non-technical. The ride can be done as a simple 4-mile out-and-back, or as part of a longer ride. The route I describe here is 14 miles. It loops through scenic Bjorkman Draw on doubletrack and does a "victory lap" around a side canyon so you get a lot more singletrack.
