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
