E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area Professional Review and Guide
"Between Monmouth and Corvallis, off Oregon 99W. Tread: gravel and asphalt roads, closed to motorized vehicles. Hazards: Poison oak may be encountered off the trails. Hunters use the area. Park at the main parking area, about 0.5 mile from Highway 99W. Interpretive signs explain the history of the area. The road heading north passes pens that contain several varieties of pheasant. Basically, you can pick your own route when exploring the refuge. The loop around the outer edge isabout 6 miles long and crosses Camp Adair Road twice. You can add distance and variety to the ride by doing concentrically smaller loops and riding the short connecting roads."
--Mark Wigg, Mountain Biking Oregon (Falcon Guides).
Quick and easy. Good place to take the kids. The area is worth visiting once because of its history as a former military base and its current preservation and bird raising efforts. They do allow some hunting, however, and I did encounter them, so watch the season.
