Herring Run Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Stroll around the busy urban retreat of Lake Montebello and then plunge into the thick woods surrounding Herring Run, a forested marvel surrounded by dense population. A $20 million restoration to Lake Montebello, which removed sludge buildup from the chemically treated water and added landscaping and road improvements, was completed in 2007. New plantings, roadwork, and an iron-barred fence around the lake have really spiffed up the place. Also added was a median (complete with flowers and ornamental grasses) that separates cars from the hiking and biking lanes, each clearly delineated."
