I spent a few hours at the EE Wilson Wildlife to get back slowly in shape after a couple weeks down with a seasonal bug. The long stretches of flat, straight and wide "trails" was a good way to get back in the saddle.
While this will not make it to my top 10 (or even top 50) list of favorite hiking spots, it has a few things that may be of interest to visitors, such as the history of Camp Adair, the OSU research areas and, of course, fishing and hunting/shooting spots.

Note: the North-South "avenues" are mostly paved and free of debris/mud. the East-West "streets" are a bit more rural and reclaimed by nature.

I may if fact go back to the EE Wilson Wildlife area for a leisurely bike ride on the paved, long, wide and vehicle-free stretches of "streets" that use to serve the barracks of the camp.

This is a nice easy hike using abandoned roadways, improved trails, raises wooden walkways and foot bridges. It has several water features including a small lake, a larger swampy area,

They are doing quite a bit of logging at the top, but besides that it's still a beautiful hike.

Nice hike, beautiful day. At the top they have been doing some logging but still pretty views.

Our first time visit mtn. biking this route. I was expecting a long, steep climb the whole way, but found most of the route to be just about right for a pleasant ride with a nice work out thrown in. I stopped for a rest a couple times on the steep section, but that just means there is some challenge left for next time. Never got out of the fog all day. Had the place to ourselves (perfect!). Logging operations going on up top, though no one was around on the weekend.
