Between Fes and Marrakech, the Middle Atlas area has gentler slopes than the High Atlas, with wooded hills, offering excellent trekking.

Attractions include a variety of Berber towns/villages, The M'Goun Geopark (a 12000 sq km region of fossils of Mesozoic age and stone structures) and the well-known Cascades d'Ouzoud (waterfalls).
