The trail begins at the Church of Our Lady in Moukhtara, passes through the Mamluk bridge of Birket el Aarouss, descends and crosses the Barouk river over the Baddeh Bridge to the western slope of the river valley. The trail continues south on a footpath recently renovated along the Barouk river on the left of which is the Baddeh water mill. It then proceeds to the Bou Matar bridge and watermill and up the eastern slopes below the village of Ain Qani. The trail then passes over an aqueduct belonging to an old water mill before arriving to the bridge of Sheikh Houssein. Below the village of Amatour the trail points south towards the village of Haret Jandal and crosses the Salman river before reaching the bottom of the Barouk valley. It then runs along the Barouk river, crosses over a small stone bridge at the Ain el Zaïtoun stream, and ends in Marj Bisri, as well as the trail can start in Barouk or Maasser el Shouf.
