A fine place for a romantic stroll with tidepools, islands, and the headland with its hidden cove. Sailboarders come from everywhere! When Lincoln City�s beaches are crowded or windy, this sheltered spot just north of town is surprisingly quiet. A short path descends to the beach at the pebbly mouth of a lazy little creek. The north beach is topped by a jumble of quaint old cottages until the beach narrows to the massive Cascade Head. Fragments of lava form ragged islands where comic, long-necked cormorants dry their black wings atop guano-stained roosts. At low tide it�s possible to clamber around the headland�s tip to a secret cove and beach. Don�t linger too long or you�ll have to wait hours until the next low tide to get out!

It’s totally worth it and it’s beautiful. It’s kinda sketchy at the start of the trail because it starts on private property and there’s no signs so show where it starts. But once you find it it’s beautiful!

Relatively easy until the straight uphill hike up gods thumb. Good view though, and I enjoyed sitting for a snack up there. Parking is a bit confusing though!

Great views of the Coastline

I am back and the sun is shining. Brilliant.

Sitting at the top of the thumb as I write this. Shrouded in fog and I can't even see the Pacific, but I can hear it roar. Amazing up here.

The trail is hard to find but well worth it. There will be a no trespassing sign and a gate, go to the gate to the left of it. This is a vehicle trail to a residence but right before then is the trail head. Without this we never would have found it so thank you everyone and hope this helps. One of the better hikes I've ever been on!
