Is a daytrip to the Atlas Mountains a must?

We will be in Marrakech for 2 nights/3 days in March. Is a daytrip out to the Atlas Mountains - possibly Ourika Valley - worth it or are we best to stick around Marrakech?

We're not after trekking, but definitely appreciate beautiful views.

I wouldn't want to miss out on it if it's a 'must see' but do know we're not there for very long so equally wouldn't want to miss seeing Marrakech!

Cheers for your help.

Yes, I find the Test pass worse than Tichka, remember 12 year ago when I was driving there first time, it was very small and very bad road, last time I was going there it was 3 years ago and the road seemed much better, but anyway worse than Tichka.

We took a daytrip to the High Atlas on a beautiful sunny day in December, ending up in Sitti Fatma. I would say it a trip to the High Atlas is very much a "must". The High Atlas is beautiful beyond description. Our minibus tour stopped at Sitti Fatma and handed us over to an authorized mountain guide. To our surprise, we were led up to the waterfall, about 1400 metres up - quite the hike! We enjoyed it immensely. The very pleasant young guide kept a very keen eye on our safety all the time. We had a great minibus driver, Aziz, friendly, informative and helpful. We were treated to a simple but delicious lunch at a Berber home after leaving Sitti Fatma. This trip was one of the highlights of our trip to Morocco.
