Welcome to Boquete EZ Friday Nature Walks
 

This Friday, we meet at 8:30 A.M. in Bajo Boquete across the street from BCP, after crossing the bridge. We leave from there at 8:35 carpooling to Bajo Mono parking at Sendero Cascada Escondida AKA Pipeline trail head. Bring $3.00 exact change please this is their entry fee. The Pipeline Trail is the home of Magnificent Resplendent Quetzale. This trail has one of their favorite foods, the tall Wild Avocado trees which are spread throughout this area and it's the Quetzale breeding season. Please continue to read more about our walk on Friday below. 

This Friday's Nature Walk adventure will be longer - 3 plus hours, our walking time may be a total of 2 hours. The area is loaded with plants, flowers, butterflies. There is also a sloth which if it is out, we may see at the first bridge crossing, the R. Quetzale normally is seen after crossing bridge 3. 

What to pack: bug spray (please put on bug spray at the car not on the trail), hat/cap, sun block (again put on at the car), water, snack, hiking stick/s (I have some to loan), binocs and camera. No need to RSVP/ or send regrets just show up if you can. 

Listen to the Quetzal call and habitat. I have included a few of my photos from past walks on this trail.
