We took an Uber to the base and walked up the road to the top. It was a good hike and made good workout. Most of the walk is on pavement and steps. We didn't go until later in the day due to rain but I've heard that if you go earlier you will see much more wildlife.

This is a great hike to see both sides of downtown Panama city and the Canal ports. You may want to do this hike during raining season cause you may be able to spot blue frogs and deers

Go early as the humidity becomes a little too much to deal with. Not a long hike, but uphill. Once you reach the top, excellent views of Panama City and the Canal.

If you traveled quite a lot and seen this kind of view before then I doubt it's worth the visit in the heat. However, on the other hand if you are new to this kind of viewing then it's probably worth it.

The climb was worth it. Spectacular views of the city and the locks. Saw a Toucan, three toed sloth and a Capybara just off the road during the walk back down. Lots of other birds and lizards.Pity the peak is fenced off but, you can still get good views. Take water, it gets hot. There are benches along the way that you can rest at in the shade.
