It would be a shame to come to Chefchaouen and spend all your time in the medina's narrow streets, completely ignoring the Rif Mountains surrounding the town. Even if you don't like hiking, or don't have time for a long expedition, you can still escape the town and climb up to a viewing platform just inside the Talassemtane National Park for fantastic views down to Chefchaouen.
Starting from the medina, your first challenge is to find your way up to the medina walls. A path through a small gate in the walls leads you through a cemetery and up to a large and ugly hotel on a road. Following the road towards the campsite, you pass a driving test centre, which can be classed as an entertainment of sorts, as you can watch several learner drivers being put through their paces in a group lesson. Just beyond the campsite, a sign announces the start of the park, and you continue along the road, looking out for a path elading through the forest on your right. It is quite steep, but after about half an hour, you can easily reach a concrete viewing platform with benches and great views. The path is rough but wide enough for cars, so if you don't have the legs for a trek, you could try to find a driver prepared to bring you up this far.
