HENNESSEY RESERVOIR  
SOUTH SHORE TRAIL

Trail Description:
Our last hike here was in December. The weather was dry and the water exceeding low.  While not full, the scenery had none the less changed dramatically. More flowers were visible, some things were still green, and the weather was balmy.
Our hike started from the bridge near Conn Valley and Greenfield roads, and took us to the spillway.

Trail Location:
See the park page for directions.
