The God's Thumb Trail in Lincoln, OR, is an easy 1.6 mile out-and-back hike out to the Pacific Ocean and the God's Thumb lookout point.

The trailhead is not easy to find - you have to walk to the end of the road, go down the driveway on the left (the one at the hairpin turn in the road). The gate will be closed but you will see tracks around the gate on the right side. Follow this driveway for less than 100 yards, and there will be a trail on the right. This is your trail.

Parking: Parking can be found down along the street along NW Logan Road. Please respect the locals and do not park or walk on private property.

Distance: The trail distance is 1.3 miles out-and-back, but the entire hike is closer to 1.6 miles since you have to hike up Logan Road to reach the trailhead.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
