livingston is correct (FOR ONCE!!!)
Yeah, in my opinion Willow is a fun tight creek, but depending on how far you are coming from it probably not worth the drive from the front range to just do Willow only. But pack that in with Fish and you will be stoked.
Willow is what I would call a begginers creek. No big drops, but rather tight and as Livingston mentioned... keep you eye out for wood. One place in particular snuck up on us really quick and a guy got pinned under it. Definitely could have been ugly if there wasn't 4 other dudes there real fast.
Elk was HUGE wavetrains all the way to the bridge takeout. But that was also running at biblical levels that day.
