Willis Creek is located along Skutumpah Road in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Utah. It is a short and super sweet hike. It's about 2-ish miles down and back if you only do the narrows and slots, but you can hike further if you wish and make it 5-miles. You can even do a loop up Bull Valley Gorge, but that requires some canyoneering skills, time, and planning. Do your research first! This video starts along Cottonwood Canyon Road. We visit The Squeeze and Grosvenor Arch along the way. I spend two nights camping at Willis Creek, and you'll see why I love it there so much. During the off-season, or during pandemics, you might get lucky and have it to yourself, but it's a popular trailhead, so don't expect to have the serenity I did.
