Collserola - excellent hikes near the city

El Parque Natural de Collserola is a 8.000 Ha hilly wood starting at the upper side of Barcelona and ending beyond the other side of the Tibidabo, the 600m peak that can be seen from the city.

It is a good option for mountain bikers, hikers or trail runners who want to go on a quick day outing or for those without a car. Except for one thing: it is incredibly difficult to find the trailheads!

The park has a nice network of GR trails, marked by red/white or yellow/white paintings. I have to admit that, after two years worth of attempts, I have not yet found the ideal way to get to the strictly wooded areas from Barcelona. This trailhead goes straight into it, but if you're on foot, you will have to take the FGC from Plaça Catalunya to La Floresta and still hike a little ways.
