Willow Creek is busiest on weekends with late summer being the most popular. You may find about 25 bathers between Angel Falls and Devil’s Slide, half being clothed. From Fresno, head north on State Route 41 about 45 miles to Oakhurst. At the junction of SR-41 and SR-49 in Oakhurst, continue north on SR-41 for 3.3 miles. Turn right onto County Road 222. After 3.5 miles, CR-222 will veer off to the right but continue straight ahead on CR-274 for 0.8 mile. Then turn left into an unmarked paved drive. After turning, take a right through a metal gate to a dirt parking area. The parking area is not signed but it is 0.6 mile past the Mountain Government Center. As you drive into the small parking area, the trail you want si on the left-hand side. Hike upstream along the creek and you will find the nude areas.
