Nice views once you hike to the top. At first look, it seems abandoned. No signs directing to the highest point in the city. Overlooks the city and the Canal Pacific side locks. It's worth the hike. Don't give up.

If you like walks and views, you'll like Ancon Hill. The view on top is nice, and the walk there is peaceful, with the road being closed off for all except working vehicles (we only encountered one). You have to be prepared for a longer...More

What a view. You can feel the history of the area from up there. We loved it and I hate hikes! The old city, canal and the stories too!

We took an Uber to the base and walked up the road to the top. It was a good hike and made good workout. Most of the walk is on pavement and steps. We didn't go until later in the day due to rain but...More

This is a great hike to see both sides of downtown Panama city and the Canal ports. You may want to do this hike during raining season cause you may be able to spot blue frogs and deers

The climb to the top of Ancon Hill would not be closed as it's an outdoor hiking road. I would guess that the beautiful Port Authority building, as a government building, would be closed on weekends. Enjoy!
