I made the mistake of taking a Taxi. This is a paved hill road that seems more applicable to walking then riding. The native foliage and birds are best seen outside of a car. The view from the top includes almost the entire city. Go on a clear day. I bought some native art for reasonable prices from a talented artist who hangs out on top.

A very nice drive up with lots to see including wildlife. The views of the City from the lookouts were amazing. When driving up is was surprising to see the number of people walking and cycling. My recommendation is to take a car.

History besides, its a great place to walk up, (physically fit) and enjoy the tropical forest so close to the city, in fact in the city.
The views of the old city, Panama Canal & the new districts is awesome.
Keep those wide angle lens ready.

You get to see where the commanding U.S. officers and other big shots lived during the canal zone days. From the top, you have great views of the city and Pacific entrance to the canal. Parking is pretty limited on top of the hill.

Very nice way to see the city and get some exercise. We walked up which I would recomend... as you can see Tucans and frogs and huge trees. The views from the top are very nice and the day we were there, there was a breeze which kept it cool. I suggest a morning walk as it will be cooler.
