What is friendship Trail?
The LMTA has been working with international trail organizations to raise awareness of and support for public footpaths through the creation of Friendship Trails. Friendship Trails were initiated through the World Trail Network (WTN) in which the LMTA is a member. This new Friendship Trail is a mark of friendship between Lebanon and Brazil. It is also a platform for exchange of experience, promotion, mutual coordination, as well as recreational and cultural exchange.
The LMT has already friendship trails with the Bruce Trail Conservancy of Canada on LMT Section 5 in Ehden, inaugurated in November 2012; and one with the Jeju Olle of South Korea on Section 21 in Jezzine area, inaugurated in 2014.


For those departing with LMTA bus from Baabda, please make sure to confirm your participation by September 6, 5pm latest on 05 955 302/ 3 or by writing to [email protected]
