This is a 77-km link route between the crossroads town of Demnate and the start of the ‘Happy Valley’ piste route.
It includes some fairly dusty, but blue (non-technical) piste as well as a visit to the natural bridge of Imi n’Ifri and two examples of dinosaur footprints.
km0: centre of Demnate with shops, cafés and fuel
km6: one of the two new hotels on the road to Imi n'Ifri
km8.2: John Cressy at Imi n'Ifri, a massive natural bridge that is well worth exploring
Easy path to the bottom
To give you an idea of the scale, look for the two people standing at the bottom
km14.8: park up to check out the dinosaur footprints
Helpfully outlined with white paint!
No shortage of willing volunteers to show you
km22: unusual viewpoint of a stream culvert—interesting when in flood
km28: lovely twisting road
km31: fairly easy piste
km42: piste disappearing into the distance
km49: spectacular strata
km52: juniper trees
km56.9: piste junction with the M'goun Massif in the distance
km72: a ksar overlooking the valley coming from Azilal
