Easy trail and suitable for a family hike. Make sure you stop at the massive ficus tree that’s survived at least 2 eruptions if 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.

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.

Nice moderate hike. About 1.5 miles up the trail is a quetzal nest that is a great spot for watching the male and female. See photos.

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.

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.
