Really nice hike in the area near to Imlil. We saw several small villages, loads of mountain views and some nice variety to the surroundings along the way.
The trail can be done in either direction and being a loop you can join it wherever it is convenient. It's not a full day hike but it would be tough to finish in half a day.
As with a lot of our Moroccan hikes we had some trouble staying on the trail, so there are a couple of backtracks to look out for (at 4.9 and 5.9 km). One section I would rate as difficult where we needed to do a steep ascent (climbed up around 50 meters) over loose rock for a distance of a couple hundred meters (at 6.3km).
The second peak has a small cafe which was selling tea and juice so it is a great place to take a break. The views are not quite as nice as the first peak so you can shorten the hike by skipping it if you are tired.
Really enjoyed this hike and it's worth doing!
Lots of nice views in the first half of the hike
The trail does a switchback here.
Was following a Wikiloc trail and blew by this intersection. It's really easy to miss.
Beautiful stream and gardens. Could not stay on the wiki we were following so got a little creative.
On the way to the top, you will cross a road three times, the last crossing is right at the top.
Peak elevation and the pass through the mountains. Some villages spotted below and a place selling beverages.
Turn off the road and head down into the village.
