Heron Pond, Spokane County, Washington

Kayaks, No Motors Allowed

Heron Pond (20 acres when full)  would only be good to access during the very wet times of the year as this is the only time there is enough water in it; A nice feature is that it’s right off the road and easy to access via hand launching. Due to its size, shallow depth, and weeds it isn’t a pond I would even want to kayak on. This pond is south of and connected to Clear Lake via a marsh. Directions: From Spokane, go west on Interstate 90, go 16 miles to Salnave Road and stay on this road until you see the pond on your right just past S. Blue Heron RD. Just park on the edge of the Salnave Rd. and access the lake by hand. Maps: To view a map click on http://www.mapquest.com and type in Medical Lake, WA. then pan in a little and you will see Clear lake on the map. From Clear Lake slide down a little more (S.) and you will see Heron Pond.
