near Mazraat ed Dahr, Mont-Liban (Lebanon)
The Mazraat El Dahr loop is scenic trail that is part walking through forests of pine, olive trees, and oak; and part walking on the side of a rocky cliff overseeing the Bisri valley. The trail is fairly moderate that can be enjoyed by beginners or families that would like to be in nature. The trail is well marked with little chance of anyone veering off or getting lost.
This is the second time the B2H group walks it and was more than happy to be their guide for a day. To our surprise, the Mzar restaurant, right in the middle of the trail, was open and treated the hikers which gave hikers the opportunity to rest and grab a manoushi (thyme pie). The weather was a bit cold with sunny skies and white clouds. The cold temp (highest 11 degrees Celsius) was a bit unusual for this time of the year.
The owner also built the tiny shrine/church next to the restaurant. They have great Manoushi (Thyme pie) and great views of Bisri Valley and Barouk mountains.
