Willow Creek sits along the Trinity River. Willow Creek is described as a “rugged mountain community nestled in the heart of the Six Rivers National Forest.” This area of California is located in the Trinity/Shasta/Cascade Region, near the Oregon border, and is easily reached via State Routes 96 (the "Bigfoot Scenic Byway") and 299.
The town, which is at the intersection of those Routes, is the Bigfoot capital of the world, and holds an annual "Bigfoot Daze" festival in September in honor of the creature, followed by various festivities in a local park. The roadhead of the Bluff Creek / Fish Lake Road, near which many alleged Bigfoot sightings and footprint finds occurred, is about 46 miles northeast, along Route 96. A non-commercial "Willow Creek Bigfoot Landmarks: A Brief Touring Guide, plus BF Odds and Ends" can be viewed online.
In "High Adventure 2014", the Young Men stop for a gas and snacks break in Willow Creek, on their way back from rafting in Big Bar. While driving through Willow Creek, Jaren Garff falls asleep in the car. Jeremy Glenn puts a small piece of chocolate in Jaren's mouth. Dallin Earl pulls out one of his hairs, and Jeremy sticks it up Jaren's nose.
