A hike starting (and ending) in the town of Imlil up through a valley to a pass between the mountains. We came down the other side of the valley for a change of routes.

It was a beautiful day in April and we had arrived from Marakesh around noon and were excited to do some exploring. After dropping off our stuff at the hotel we grabbed some lunch and then took this route west of Imlil.

We went off the beaten path pretty quickly (see waypoint called intersection 1). The footing was sketchy at times and the path was occasionally difficult to follow especially in rocky areas where multiple paths appeared. The only snow spotted was a small patch at the peak. There was a small hut at the top and we were surprised to see a man selling soda pop and oranges. A good hike to get acclimatized to the altitude, we both had some minor symptoms.

There are several different ways to do the middle portion of the hike, including more road on the way up and the descent on the opposite bank did have a few challenges (some steep sections and winding your way through the homes). We had GPS, lots of time and energy and enjoyed the adventure.

Doable in half a day, some nice views and we savored our lunch and dinner in Imlil at the start and finish.

No bridge here but the water was pretty low when we did the trail.
