A wide gravel path takes you around two small lakes surrounded by willows and some cattails, with a second path continuing N through a grassy meadow and ash woods. The ponds host waterfowl year round; in spring warblers abound in the willows. The meadow hosts sparrows, and the woods are good for thrushes, wrens and vireos. Osprey often dive into the small ponds to take stocked trout. Restrooms are located across the lake from the parking area.
From I-84, take Exit 14. Drive 0.9 mi S on 207th Ave/Fairview Pkwy to Glisan St. Turn R, and then almost immediately turn R into the parking lot of the Lodges at Lake Salishan apartment complex. There is reserved parking for park visitors here. Transit: Take TriMet bus 77. Get off at 207th Ave and walk S two blocks to the Salish Ponds Trailhead.
