Trail Description
This section of the LMT begins in the well-preserved village of Hasroun and climbs up to the orchards and open country above the villages of Dimane, Brissat (بريسات ), and Hadath el Jebbe. It then crosses the high open country that leads to the cedar forest of Tannourine before dropping into the rocky valleys that find their way to Tannourine el Faouqa.  The entire area is covered by snow in winter and can be explored with snowshoes. Highlights include Mar Laba Church in Hasroun, the Tannourine Cedars nature reserve, fruit orchards and scenic panoramas in all directions. A 9-km dirt road from Hasroun to the Tannourine Cedar Reserve is suitable for biking.
