    Nature hiking is not about rushing to the end, but more about looking at what surrounds you, relaxing and learning more about Boquete's natural beauty. We hike "Off the Beaten Path" it's the best way to hike and to take in nature. This Wednesday 11/29 is for the intermediate to advanced hiker. We’ll meet at the Boquete Library located in Bajo Boquete along the main road leading into town at 8:30 AM., carpooling from there to a side road off the Jaramillo loop (on the Hotel Oasis side). When we hike down this road and back, we’ll see Lucero and if we’re lucky may even see the Pacific. The road is called the La Estrella/ El Valle. It’s not too bad of a gravel road with lots of up and down but no extended periods of either. Lots of fun sites and good company. This is a gravel road so wearing shorts are fine, if you prefer. Bring water, raingear, bug spray, wear sunblock and a snack. Do what you feel comfortable with and come join the fun. See you on the trail. We meet at different locations twice a week. Wednesday for the intermediate to advanced hiker, EZ Friday is for the beginner, even for the advanced hiker and especially for the nature lover, birder and photographer. Email Jere McCormick to be placed on the hiking email listing to receive your weekly announcements. jere chica @gmail .com (no spaces) What does nature "hiking off the beaten" mean? No hikes on asphalt, we hike where the guides don't take the visitors 95% of the time, we hike in the surrounding hills of Boquete and in rainforest area - even during the rainy season. See you on trails.....

    Meeting 8:30 A.M. on the Boquete Library square at 8:35 we carpool to the trailhead - Pipeline Trail. Our hike will be 2 plus hours. Please bring $3.00, exact change would be helpful for the worker collecting - this is the entry fee. This is another perfect area for nature buffs, birders and for the person who wants to do some exercise on that morning. It is part meadow, then the trail becomes a rainforest with the Rio Caldera gently flowing alongside the trail. We may not hear or see a Quetzal as, it is not yet the mating season, but then one never knows. There are many birds to spot on this trail so bring along binocs. We will also see the oldest tree in the area over 1000 years. This magnificent tree has survived at least one Volcan Baru eruption. So as you can tell there is much to see on this trail. Pack rain gear as well as water, a snack, binocs, camera and remember your hiking sticks. Wear long pants, hiking shoes or gym shoes with good outer sole treads. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful - Alice Walker See you on the trail - Jere McCormick
