Nice walk with a gradual ascent towards Parc da Collserola (Serra de Collserola), one of the most famous parks in Barcelona, located behind the city, with a great variety of routes to enjoy. This route begins at the edge of the park in the town of Cerdanyola del Valles. Leave the La Riera information kiosk, then take the Can Cata trail. Pass under the aqueduct and to the left is the chapel of Santa Maria de les Feixes. Ignore the path to the left and continue the path to our right marked towards the Masia de Can Coll. This path passes through a well shaded area with a lovely mix of Mediterranean forests. Once you reach the recreation area (Area de Lieure de Can Coll), cross the street following the signs for House Can Coll. Then follow the road to Montflorit. After a gradual ascent, head towards the neighborhood, which will take you back to the La Riera information kiosk. Masia de Can Coll hours: Sundays and holidays from 10:00 to 2:00 pm.Show more

Walk or jog to the Oficina Diputacio entrance (gated but open to the public), just north and slightly west of the Montbau metro stop. Here the route begins as you start to run up a paved road, heading north through Campus de Mundet. Turning left (west) at the Facultat de Psicologia roundabout you will make your way to the start of a dirt road that turns to head northeast uphill, before turning back again to the northwest. (No cars are allowed on the dirt road as there is a chain where the pavement ends.) After several steep switchbacks you will be near the top of the hill where there is an intersection with access to a single-track trail to your right (a little hard to find) heading east back downhill. Take the trail down the hill, and turn left at a fence to follow the trail back northwest as it parallels Carrer Germans Desvalls up to a small park (Font De La Marquesa). Here you will turn left (west) to start back up another steep hill trail with several switchbacks near the top. The trail brings you to a dirt road near Mirador de Cerdanyola from where you will head south along the open ridge line, which offers beautiful views of Barcelona below. (Again, no cars seem to have access to this area.) The dirt road ends at the Centre d'acollida d'animals de companyia, where it can become a bit confusing, but head east toward the nearby sharp curve on BP-1417 (staying on the north side of the highway and watching for cars). Here, if you look carefully near the highway railing, you will again find access to a single-track trail heading back north into the woods. Taking the trail you will soon come to a junction, turn right (southeast) and follow the trail as it heads down to Mirador de Montbau. From here you turn left to get on a dirt road that heads back northwest, ending at Ermita de Sant Cebrià d'Horta. Turning right, you finally take Carrer de Sant Cebrià southeast, passed Escola Baloo, and back to the start. This completes a running loop of about 10km (six miles). This is a highly recommended route, mainly on single-track trail and dirt roads, with several solid hill workouts offering beautiful views of Barcelona. If possible, it is best to do this run in daylight hours as some of the trail-heads can be hard to locate, and be on the lookout for wild boars in the wooded areas!Show more

La Floresta is a district of Sant Cugat del Vallès, located in the north-western slopes of the Sierra de Collserola. From the train station of La Floresta this particular route starts off with a gentle climb up through the village towards Les Planes. Sticking to the quiet streets, the route then comes off onto a small dirt track following around the hill edge towards Les Planes. After the hill track ends the route then joins onto the main street leading towards the village town hall. From here the route then carries on though village onto the track Avinguda Collserola. Once at the main junction the route then comes off onto a small path leading around the side of Tibidabo towards a main road. Crossing the main road Carretera Sant Cugat the route then joins back onto a small track heading along the top of Sierra de Collserola. Once along the top this is where you get to see all of Barcelona from right to left pointing out all the famous parts in the distance.  Continuing along the main path and after about half an hour this route then takes a right turn onto another path sign posted Mundet. Here the path zigzags down towards Església de les Llars Mundet. Once at the bottom the route joins the main street thought the campus ending up at the end point metro stop Mundet. Overall: the route has a steady climb to the top but by far once at the top of the Sierra de Collserola the views are not to be missed. Then heading along the hillside of the Sierra de Collserola before taking the last part of a slow descending path to the bottom edge of Barcelona Mundet. Show more
