Reviewed 13 June 2014

Path for hiking and biking is shared with vehicle traffic, which is light but often not paying close attention. Views are fantastic of downtown, Casco Viejo, and the Panama Canal. Total hike is less than a hour up and down. Mostly shaded, but definitely humid.

The hill is a good hours walk from cinco de mayo but the views from the top are magnificent.

You can see the skyscrapers of the financial district, the old city, the bridge of the Americas and the Panama Canal.

There isn't any facilities up there so bring supplies with you for the journey. You could of course take a taxi there if you wanted!

Historic attraction representing the US departure from Panama City. The Hill was a former US military base that has a single lane road to the top with security personnel controlling the drive up and down so that two vehicles don't meet in the middle.
