Montserrat could be considered the most famous hike in Catalonia. The trailhead is tricky to find. There might not be parking at the trailhead, most visitors take the train or bus to the area and then walk to the trailhead. Visitors with cars could probably park in town and walk to the trailhead. This trail could be made into a loop by using GR-96. It is slightly more steep, and goes directly up to the Montserrat summit, whereas GR-5 curves around the mountain a bit before reaching the summit.

My absolute favorite hike. we cut out many miles of the hike by entering by the highway, basically going straight up the mountain. we came not super prepare, I did it in trail running shoes and my friends did it in sneakers. Trust me though, it’s a work out, but absolutely the most beautiful hike i have ever done and probably will ever do. Wear sunscreen! We did it in march and it was still pretty hot, perfect hiking weather though.

Great trail! I would recommend going up on GR96 since it's more of a scramble and then going down on GR5 since it's nicer and longer in the sun. Between those two I did the sant joani trail which I would really recommend. The views get even more beautiful. All in all amazing views and really beautiful mountains!
