You’ve just arrived in Morocco and can’t wait to get on a piste but you want something relatively easy to cut your teeth on?

This is it. The route is a very easy blue (non-technical), almost a green and is ideal for an evening run out after checking into your Chefchaouen hotel. It's suitable for 2wd vehicles together with an optional extension to take you to the ‘Ras el Ma’ springs that are the reason for the location of the town.

Then the next morning you can tackle the more challenging red (technical) ‘N30 Through the Horns’ route.
