National Metropolitan Park Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

It is basically a 4 K battle to the top of the hill. Once on top, you get to enjoy the view and then go back down.- The trail is mostly hard packed soil mixed with rocks in the dry season and very muddy in the rainy season.The trail goes up doing spirals around a virgin rainforest hill.- Always empty, but for the occasional bird watching hiker.-

Reviewed by: Fernando , from Panama City

It is a good way to add a little mountain biking to your morning/pre-work inner-city ride.- I used to start riding at 5.00 a.m., from my house in Punta Paitilla across town to the top of the Park, and was back usually by 7:30.- The trail is just one very steep spiral climb aroung the hill.- The trail is well maintained, with good scenery, and all kinds of animal life.- Once on top you can relax and get a good view of all Panama city from the Panama Canal to Tocumen.-
The descent is fun as hell.- It is a great but short trail.
