Several hiking trails run through the area and allow you to explore the reservoir and surrounding area.
The setting for a tragic legend
The Las Niñas reservoir is shrouded in legend and mystery. A 400 year-old pine tree close by is said to have witnessed a woman being burned to death. Today the tree, which has survived several forest fires, stands in silhouette opposite the campsite.
