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 to the entrance of the Diputacio Office (closed but open to the public), just north and slightly west of the Montbau neighborhood metro stop. The route begins here as it begins to run on a paved road, heading north through Campus de Mundet. Turning left (west) at the Psychology College roundabout, you will make your way to the start of a dirt road that turns northeast uphill, before heading northwest again. (Cars are not allowed on the dirt road as there is a chain where the pavement ends.) After several sharp bends you will be near the top of the hill where there is an intersection with access to a one way trail on your right (a little hard to find) heading east back downhill. Take the trail downhill and turn left at a fence to follow the trail back northwest as it parallels Carrer Germans Desvalls to a small park (Font De La Marquesa). Here you will turn left (west) to go back up another steep trail with several curves near the top. The trail takes you to a dirt road near the Mirador de Cerdanyola, from where you will head south along the open ridge line, offering beautiful views of Barcelona below. (Again, it appears that no cars have access to this area.) The dirt road ends at the Company Animation Academic Center, where it can get a bit confusing, but head east towards the nearby hairpin bend at BP-1417 (Stay on the north side of the road and keep an eye on the cars ). Here, if you look carefully near the road railing, you will again find access to a one-way trail that heads north into the woods. Taking the path, you will soon come to a crossroads, turn right (southeast) and follow the path until you reach the Mirador de Montbau. From here, turn left to take a dirt road that heads northwest and ends at Ermita de Sant Cebrià d'Horta. Turning right, finally take Carrer de Sant Cebrià to the southeast, pass Escola Baloo and return to the exit. This completes a running loop of about 10 km (six miles). This is a highly recommended route, mainly on single track trails and dirt roads, with several workouts on solid hills that offer beautiful views of Barcelona. If possible, this is best done during the day as some of the heads can be difficult to locate, and keep an eye out for wild boars in wooded areas!Show more

Nice route through Collserola to complete the entire route of the Mitja Marató de Collserola organized by the UEC de Horta every year. It begins in Sant Feliu de Llobregat and goes through the Sierra de Collserola Natural Park. The route runs between track and small trails Medium qualification route since although it does not have a great difference in level, it is a continuous up and down. The route is very well signposted by green plates, both the half Marathon and the Marathon Start and finish at the Horta Velodrome.Show more

The city of Molins de Rei is located on the outskirts of Barcelona. It has many nice and quiet walks, which lead to the hills of the Serra de Collserola. This particular route begins in Castellciuro in the direction of Ermita de Santa Creu d'Olorda. The route is well signed and posted with a wide track to follow. Overall, this is a good walk with a lot to see along the way, like La Pedrera dels Ocells.Show more

We move with the car through the Ronda de Dalt, we leave it at the exit of Horta to follow the BV-1415 road with signs to the Collserola cemetery. Just when you cross the Ventosa pass with the car, you will observe the change of vegetation between one slope and the other. The part of Barcelona is much drier while on the slope that faces the Vallés the vegetation is much more lush. The Romanesque church of Sant Iscle de les Feixes We take the path that goes to the church of Sant Iscle de les Feixes. It is a kind and fairly wide forest track The path descends gradually and goes into the forest. The Sant Iscle torrent hardly makes an appearance but its consequences are clearly visible due to the thick vegetation that we find next to the path. After a couple of kilometers approximately, we arrive at the church that presides over the valley. Sant Iscle de les Feixes is a 12th century Romanesque church and is protected as a cultural asset of local interest. The same PR-35 makes an ascent parallel to the road just without touching it. To do this, you must enter the premises of a residence called Torre Bertran. If you do it in the dark or on a stormy day this place can give you a good scare. Its silhouette, its half-neglect, transports us to a novel by Stephen King and it is surprising to see how well cared for the gardens and adjacent areas are compared to the building. After leaving the Torre Bertran again we go into the forest where a small path follows the parallel of the road without hardly seeing it or hearing cars. A few minutes later the path leads to the same road with the Ventosa pass visible before us.Show more
