Nice walk

16 days ago

If you like flat and uncrowded with a variety of habitats this is a great place for a leisurely stroll. We hiked several of the roads and mowed trails and stopped often to look at birds and the multitude of flowering plants and shrubs. Crossed paths with a pair of dog walkers (dog was on leash) and one family and one man fishing in the stocked lake. The rest of the walk was ours alone!

Yuck. Dead, old broken county roads of old govt facility gone to vines. Remains of buildings & broken fences, bad water signs...hardly any wildlife. Some families trying to fish in stocked pond, garbage dump nearby. ...yuck

map is incorrect, the trail that is marked is actually the 300 rd not 400. Good hike overall as long as you don't mind elevation climb, I came in the actual 400 rd to the summit where it meets the 300 rd and went right then off on the 420rd back to the truck. there was no logging going on and only met one person the whole time.

why call it the 400 rd loop when this rout never utilizes the 400 rd... very confusing.

Not that great, went with family but there were lots of homeless bothering us, wouldn't recommend if you plan on taking children

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.
