Trail Las Guías
From El Valle down to the junction with El Macanito its just a road. Be aware. Good for going back to El Valle after riding down Chicharron tough.

Trail La Silla
This trail was hard to find. You need to climb 1.5km to the cross to start DH. I recommend Enduro bike which is rare in panama. During initial climb, there are sections you need to hike. From the road to the cross, its 2km up. The rest is down. I which i would have done it on bike. The problem is you cant do this on hard tAil and enduro bikes are rare.
