“Enjoyed walking the beach and the hike up to God's Thumb”

Reviewed 21 November 2017

I started my walk out of Roads End State Recreation site and down on to the beach. The weather was brisk but clear. The soft sand was pleasant to walk on. Eventually I exited the beach and climbed back up to Port Street and followed it to the dead end. At the metal gate there is a narrow passageway that you enter to start the hike up to God's Thumb. It is a very muddy trail and slippery in spots, so care must be taken. Everything is quite beautiful and gets better as you go. You finally break out into the open and then proceed up the exceedingly steep trail to the summit of God's Thumb. Great views up there and I reflected on the quote by Frank Lloyd Wright who said, "I believe in God, only I spell it Nature" and enjoying the view up on the summit of the Thumb I believe that statement to be true. I carefully worked my way back down to level ground and proceeded back to Roads End. A very satisfying hike and one I recommend.

Road's End offers lots and lots of flat sandy beach to walk on. Easy access to get to the sand and not usually very crowded.

Roads End State Recreation Park is a great place to stop for beach access. It's great for a quick view of the ocean or wandering down to the beach. This beach extends for quite a ways so it's also a great place to start your beach walk.

The park is easy to find but parking can be tight, particularly during the busy season. I was there in October (not the busy season) and parking was a bit of a challenge just prior to sunset. I can only imagine what it's like during the busy season. It's best to plan ahead!

Easy access to the beach. Long, uncrowded beach walk. Rocky areas to the north provided different views.
