Trailhead was easily accessible via my Toyota 4Runner with 4 wheel drive. Very shallow stream crossings, and some rough terrain, but nothing too extreme.

With that said, I arrived at night, it's easy to miss the trailhead road sign for Willow Creek, if you continue straight you will dead end at the Equity Mine. Be careful as there is a road that goes down into the stream just to the left of the mine, luckily, there are two big boulders at the bottom of this dirt road which would be very difficult to get over even with a high clearance vehicle.

If you arrive at the Equity mine, you went too far, turn around, maybe just 100 or so yards and take the dirt road that forks left before reaching the mine.
