Plantation Road, located in the Soberania National Park and only 30 minutes from Panama City is a double and single track trail. It is much narrower than Pipeline road, although just as well defined, and thus  cooler due to the forest canopy.

Soberania is one of the most easily accessible tropical forests in the world. The wildlife inhabiting this 22,000 hectare (55,000 acre) park is incredible. There are approximately 525 species of birds, 80 species of reptiles, 55 species of amphibians and over 100 species of mammals.

This trail gives you a real sense of moving through jungle as the Spanish Conquistadors did back in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is excellent possibilities here to see birds and wildlife, especially if you arrive early in the morning. The trail is about ten miles round trip, and is a good steady uphill for about 2.5 miles before a gradual downhill to the end of the road.

This trip is rated moderate or advanced due to the hill and the semi-rough and muddy conditions. Choose one trail fork for moderate rides, and another for advanced. Trail conditions vary from dirt, gravel, hard packed sand, mud, and anything else you can imagine. The conditions are perfect for mountain biking because you move slowly and quietly – except when you are bombing down the hills getting your adrenaline fix - enhancing the possibilities of seeing wildlife. Depending on your conditioning this can be done all the way through or part way.  Bring a hydration pack and a sense of curiosity and adventure.
