Trail Description
This section of the LMT crosses the main Beirut-Damascus highway before passing the Mghiti plain and parallels the high peaks of the Lebanon mountain range above the relatively large towns of Ain Dara and Ain Zhalta.  The hiker will see cedar trees near Falougha and Bmahrai (بمهريه) .  The main highlights of this section are the scenic views of the Lamartine valley, the village square in Bmahrai and the water spring and pine forest at Nabeh Safa (نبع الصفا) .  There is plenty of snow in the winter but for the most part, the area remains accessible. This entire section is suitable for biking.
