  9. Good to hear you enjoyed La India Vieja in panama and I can tell you why the trail up to the piedra was so elusive, its because there actually isn’t one. I know this due to the piedra being at the top of our property and the best route up there being through our property. I’m not writing this to berate as judging from the pictures and descriptions you seem to have been going through the property to the south of us, possibly just touching the south end of what’s ours. Even if you did pass through our land you weren’t to know that it was private property and you obviously believed you were looking for a sanctioned trail, when in fact we have never been approached by any Panamanian official wanting to establish an official trail.
    My reason for contacting you is to possibly use you as platform if anyone after seeing your very good write up and pictures contacts you wanting information. I’m not against people (with limitations) using the route through our land as long as conditions are met. For example, we would need to know when and have our indigenous worker who lives up there be their guide to ensure no one gets lost or injured. We would need to cover the expense of a days loss of work on his part, but that’s it. It makes me nervous to think that someone would attempt that trek, break a leg with no one knowing they were there and then we get hit by a lawsuit. Not to mention possible property damage and animals getting out due to carelessness which would be hardship and out of pocket expense for me.
    I’m all for people enjoying some of the best scenery in the world and yes it is a hidden and little known gem even by many of the locals, which is probably due to it being very difficult to access. You were lucky getting a taxi to take you there, a few months earlier the road was very bad, you were fortunate that the road was so good! As a point of interest, if you had gone straight on rather than taking the right you would have passed over a river then a hundred meters up the sharpe incline it levels off with a small clearing looking to the right there is another river. Our property is the other side of the river and the views rival anywhere with an unobstructed view from the edge of David out to the ocean to Boca Chica and beyond. If you are ever back in Boquete I have another trek for you that is just as good as the piedra, which is to our second property over the top of the mountain deep in the jungle and also has a great view.
