Willow creek can get rather full after heavy rains, but for the most part this trail is suitable for most stock SUV’s and truck. The road is open to green sticker vehicles, so be cautious of oncoming traffic. Most of the route is dry and should not require four wheel drive. However higer ground clearance is a concern and four wheel is likely needed for one or two climbs.

A Forest Service Adventure Passes are required if you plan on stopping along the way.
