Willow Creek drops over a fairly impressive waterfall just east of Washington Pass.  The waterfall can be clearly seen across the valley from Highway 20.  It begins with a twisting cascade, followed by another cascading drop, and then a stunning curtain of water as the finale.  There is apparently a bootpath of some sort that leads to the falls, a popular place for ice climbing in the winter.  From across the valley the waterfall is impressive enough, but from up close, this would be a really nice waterfall.  The creek is fairly seasonal and gets really small by the end of summer so check this one out shortly after Highway 20 opens up for the summer.

 

DIRECTIONS - Take HWY 20 east to Washington Pass.  East of the pass is a sharp, hairpin turn in the highway.  About a mile after this, Willow Creek Falls can be clearly seen across the valley.  There are several pullouts with nice views.
