It provides a vital link to the water requirements of 12 million residents of Metro Manila considering that 1.5 million liters of water pass through this reservoir every day. The forest trails of La Mesa Nature Reserve are a top mountain biking destination in the metro and the lake offers a refreshing rest stop and view for bikers.
