Power City Wildlife Area
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Park in the small lot on the north side of Bensel Road (0.2 mile east of Hwy 395) for access to this 80-acre wetland. Waterproof boots are required to enter some of the area. Birding is best in spring and summer. Look for Virginia Rail, Sora, some passerines, and American Bittern (locally rare).
