Description

This is an easy trail that leads through an old-growth grove of mountain hemlocks and shasta red firs. The natural-surface tread is fairly smooth and, therefore, accessible to wheelchairs with some assistance. There are self-guided tour brochures on offer at the trailhead.

The southern section of the trail traces the edge of the Munson Creek canyon. Along the way, you'll have plenty of great views of the pinnacles or fossil fumaroles, Godfrey Glen and the confluence of Munson Creek and Annie Creek. The western section of the trail follows the edge of Annie Creek Canyon, where a small creek, which cuts the loop trail in half, empties into Annie Creek.

Historical fact:
Godfrey Glen was named by Park Superintendent E. C. Solinsky in memory of William C. Godfrey, Chief Ranger, who in the discharge of his duties lost his life in a snowstorm near the south entrance of the Park, Nov. 17, 1930.
