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!

Overgrown but worth it! Hardest part was finding where to park without worrying about getting a ticket!

Great trail but be ready for a steep climb at the end of the trail where gods thumb is at.

Muddy in the rainy winter, but still a great hike with amazing views. Just wear footwear with good tread. Fun short hike.

Great short hike. Wear good shoes as it is a bit muddy, especially coming back down. If you have a dog be sure to use a leash as u reach the top. It's a looong way down the other side. Great view!!

Strange entrance (climbing over a gate) and hiking on a private drive for the beginning of the hike, but overall once you get to the trailhead, the trail is maintained nice with great views. Get ready to gain elevation quickly.

Easy hike. Hiked with a 5 month old puppy. Wave action was great today. Good hike for any skill level

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.
