E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area is a 16 mile loop trail located near Monmouth, OR and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
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,
