There are many gorgeous places to hike in the highlands of Chiriqui near Volcán Barú. One of the easiest and most rewarding hikes is called The Pipeline hike, which runs along a water line through the cloud forest to a hidden waterfall. It takes less than a few hours to go in and out, and is relatively easy, but there is much to see! My husband and I like to go for a quick bit of fresh air and exercise when we don’t want to commit to something long and strenuous. I’d like to share a few bits from our last excursion. Enjoy!

Small, wobbly foot bridges cross the creeks.

A giant, prehistoric tree. Can you find me?

This is a recording of a bird that sounds just like a swing set. I’ve been wondering about it for years, but I’ve never seen it. If anyone can identify it, please leave it in the comments section.
