Nobody uses the Herring Reservoir for recreation, as it's now the site of the Elizabeth George Water Treatment Plant. Says Kevin
So much amusing stuff to do here in the Northern Sierra Nevada, too good to be true. People from Nevada City love to come to Herring Reservoir, and while you're here, you could stop by Little Deer Creek. Lakes are such calm spots, why not check out Lake Combie near Herring Reservoir, and don't leave without popping by Empire
Mine State Park. Not sufficient hours in a day to enjoy this location. There is a glorious hiking trail near Herring Reservoir called the South Yuba Trail, and Herring Reservoir is near Prosperity Lanes where you can have a lot of excitement.
