“Easy Hike & Proper Wilderness”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

I expect in a few years time this hike will be overrun with tourists, but we were the only ones on the trail. It was a bit rainy but that didn't matter much. the waterfall at the top is lovely and the wildlife on the way makes the walk interesting.

“Tough - at best”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Pipeline Trail is THE birding trail though I have to say, it's difficult to get to (there is signage but it is poor) and I didn't have much luck finding any of the wonderful birds that it's meant to have. Possibly just bad luck on my part..

“Best trail in Boquete”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

THIS is the THE trail to take in Boquete. It does cost $3 but is worth it. The trail is not to difficult and the views and time it takes to hike it is great. The waterfall at the end of the trail is worth the extra effort. Lots of birds to see including the Quetzales.

“Lots of monkeys, many birds, beautiful nature”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

The pipeline trail offers a wide variety of wildlife. It is close to Panama city. You can take the bus from Panama city Albrook station to Gamboa and walk from there. Or you can stay in Gamboa itself.

It is best to go early in the morning. There are lots of howler monkeys, some sloths and many different type of birds (but sometimes difficult to spot the birds).
