Sendero muy húmedo, rocoso, hay que pasar el río al rededor de 14 veces. Recomiendo utilizar pantalón y camisa largas, hay un mosquito que causa una llaga así que llevar repelente, llevar guía si no conoce el sendero, hay muchas trochas que conducen a otros lugares

Nice hike. Highlight is 1000 year old tree. Waterfall was minimal when we visited. The hike is pretty rocky in places.

HikingMuddyScramble

This is my second time here (I created the original entry on AllTrails) and this trail always delivers. We took a family of friends and kids aged 7 to 11 and had an absolute blast. The trail is relatively short and we took plenty of time to take photos. Altos de Campana has some incredible biodiversity and a unique habitat, particularly insects and plants but some amazing birds too. We took plenty of time but don’t be fooled by the short distance and limited elevation gap. The trail is muddy and some parts can be strenuous. Bring good shoes and be prepared to scramble and hold on to roots and branches as you go up or down the steep slope. Remember to register at the park headquarters or you may be fined.

I love this trail and your description of it. Well done, and thanks for sharing. What I find a little bit off is the GPS track. I’m very familiar with Camino de Cruces and your track is about 1 to 2Km off to the SW. I tried uploading the track from my computer and the app tells me that it needs to be “approved”. Next time I’ll try just recording the route from the AllTrails app on my phone. If you think you can edit your track, that’d be very helpful to other users. If you don’t have a more accurate track, send me a message and I’ll be happy to share it with you and the others.

Great trail! We just walked up to the top of Ancon hill and waited for sunset on Dec. 8,2019. It was pretty area and easy walking distances from the center of Panama City. Highly recommend to everybody who love nature when you visit Panama City.

Great trail! Lots of birds and incredible views. Can get muddy during the rainy season and the steep trail can turn into a river with rain. But so so fun!

Excellent historic trail. My partner was exhausted at the end. We crossed a guy who twisted his ankle and couldn't walk. We made 2 crutches for him so to keep walking. His friend went for help and 2 hours later we crossed the guys from SINAPROC, those guys were really well prepared with litter, ropes, etc to take the guy out of the jungle. a very recommended trail

Easy trail and suitable for a family hike. Make sure you stop at the massive ficus tree that’s survived at least 2 eruptions of Volcan Baru. It’s not every day you get a chance to see a 1,400 year old tree! Some beautiful farmland along the beginning of the trail. I heard monkeys but never could see them. Fairly easy and no steep sections. Use caution on the foot bridges as they’ll be a bit slippery.

Excellent hike! One of the best that I have done, but you have to plan for it. I would recommend about $140 cash to make this happen, although you can save money if you have a GOOD 4x4. I also highly recommend getting a guide. My guides were Ryan and Mika. Ryan is a biologist, so when we were walking, he brought my attention to all sorts of exotic plants and wildlife. Mika is new to Kalu Yala but brings her experience from living in Equador on the Amazon River to help students and adventurers explore the habitat. On the hike, we saw two different breeds of monkeys, poison dart frogs, and countless birds and insects. At the Kalu Yala camp, I met some of the most thoughtful and interesting people who are like-minded with us outdoor types. NOTE: Technically, you could do the hike for free with an excellent four-wheel drive, and moderate land navigation skills, but I do recommend the guide. Recommended Packing List: - x2 pairs of polyester/nylon socks (your feet get wet and stay wet) - Good hiking shoes that dry quickly. - Nylon/polyester pants - Polyester shirt - Swim trunks - Reef or approach shoes for the waterfall. - Camera ( I used my cellphone camera which worked fine) - Snacks - Water treatment or life straw (The hike lasts about 6 hours out and back, allowing time for pictures)

Gorgeous once you get into the jungle and the waterfall at the end is magic. Rickety bridge crossings and moderate elevation change makes this a great choice if you only have a day or two to hike in Boquete.

Beautiful views of the valley below the whole way! Wear long pants or socks to protect from the grass, it’ll cut. Definitely worth the climb!

This trail is near Boquete and locally called the "Pipeline Trail". It's 2.8 miles R/T, not 3.8. It takes about 1 hour and 10 mins in, less than an hour out. It follows a stream up to a box canyon where you will find the "Cascada Escondida" falls. The review by Ryan is about a different hike called "The Lost Waterfalls". Suggest: 1. Removing this review and accurately putting it under the correct trail. 2. Renaming this Trail "The Pipeline" not Boquete Waterfalls.

The magical jaguar falls! A nice hike, not to hilly nor strenuous. However, it is wet. Around 17 river crossings means a lot of walking through water. Hiking down to the actual falls is super steep but fun if you have the right attitude. And the waterfall itself is gorgeous, refreshing and a great way to spend a hot day.

Awesome trail with breathtaking views at the top. You have to do it on a clear day but if you do you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Panama City, and both North and South America. Absolutely amazing

Multiple giant waterfalls make the end worth the effort. The climb is not too steep so moderate is a good description. The second waterfall Requires climbing a wall with rope and is the hardest part.
