Wetlands, Ponds, and History. Easy Hike/Bike. Camp Adair is now the EE Wilson Wildlife Area which is maintained by the Oregon Department of Fish and Game. There is a staff person on site and parking at the trail. The trail is marked with at least 8 marked stations that link with the trail map. Maps are available that the parking area. The first half of the hike is on an old paved army road. At the end of the road is a fishing pond and wetland viewing area with restroom. From this point the trail winds through the wetland area on a trail covered in wood chips. Best done in the summer, but can be done in the winter by may require and in and out vs. the loop trail due to water. Also, there is much wildlife in the area and at times some hunters. The area is best known for phesants, and there are schedule youth and handicap hunts, but not near the hiking trail.

Perfect weather for these trails. About 70 degrees. Some of the trail is sunny and some shaded. I would like to go back and try a longer trail! When we went there was a lot of people at the pond. I saw lots of fish being caught.

I’ve been going here, for years and this, is the first time that I haven’t seen or caught any fish. I haven’t even seen any fish, hitting the water. It’s eerie. Others that I have talked to, have said the same thing. There are very few minnows, as well. If you go, be careful; as there are nesting geese. Also, watch out for fishing line, hooks, lures, etc., all around the little pond. If you go in the afternoon, you’ll get run over by people trying to walk. The ones that I’ve run into, don’t care if you’re fishing or whatever. They will walk, in front of you or stand behind you and talk loudly or they will attempt, to walk, all the way around the little pond and then come back, all bewildered because they cannot figure out how, to go completely around, the pond.

Great little hike. Took our 4 and 5 year old on a pretty warm day and they were tired but completed it strong! Might bring the fishing poles to throw a line in the pond next time. Don't forget you need your odfw parking pass! You can buy it online ahead of time.
