Another beautiful easy loop between Zaarour and Mtein, aroud "wadi el Balou3). The way down to Mtein is mainly on LMT section 15. The sceneries are magnificent with rocks, trees and mountains in background. Just before reaching "Mrouj-Aintoura" road which you have to cross if you are continuing to Mtein, i went up through another amazing pine forest where you will find footpaths. The trail goes up and you will be walking on the hills west to the valley. Many dirt roads and interserctions will lead you to the starting point. Kindly have a small bag with you and clean some rubbish on your way. I am happy that more and more people are enjoying the outdoors. If each one of us removes some of the trash, we will make our common home cleaner and healthier. Keep hiking!
