Willow Creek Trail is a paved, multi-use trail for hiking or biking that’s accessible from Draper City Park. From the flagpole by the east parking lot in the park, you can go in three directions; to access Willow Creek Trail, go straight.
The trail crosses a creek via a covered bridge called Watson’s Crossing and continues into the park. You’ll soon see a junction on the left; this is a short connector trail that divides the larger park loop in half. Keep going straight on the main loop along the edge of a baseball field. Soon the trail turns south and arrives at the junction for the Willow Creek Trail at the southwest corner of the park. Turn left to stay on the park loop, or continue straight onto the Willow Creek Trail.
Continuing on Willow Creek Trail will take you south alongside open farmlands. Soon the trail turns west and continues past some homes and one minor street crossing. Check for traffic before continuing on to the end of the trail at Fort Street, approximately 0.7 miles from where it began in Draper City Park.
