Super trail following the Nahr Ibrahim Valley and going trough Jabal Moussa Reserve.

The beggining is car-friendly so you may met some cars but the path is nice and as you probably will strat early in the morning you won't meet that much car.

Once at the entry of the Jabal Moussa Reserve, the path is easy to follow to reach the Chouwen Lake.

From there two paths leads to the other side of the park where you can follow Nahr Ibrahim valley. A bit after Qerqraiya the path is hard to follow and be prepare to fight against bramble branches.It is hard but really off-beaten path.

If you are tired you can get to the Dam and from it follow a vehicle road made for the construction work. https://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=18131309
