We will begin the itinerary circulating very smoothly, warming legs on the Aigües road in the direction of the Baix Llobregat. Arriving at Plaça Mireia we will begin the ascent towards Vallvidrera, to find the paths that will take us to the Can Pasqual Hills, one of the high points of the Sierra, from where we can enjoy great views in all directions.

Once we recover the effort of the rises, we will go towards the valley of Sant Just Desvern and Sant Feliu de Llobregat in long descent and pronounced. We will pass through the Torre de Santa Margarida and the Torre del Bisbe until reaching Can Ferriol, where we will find a strong climb that will take us to the leisure area of ​​Santa Creu d'Olorda. From here, we will go down to Sant Bartomeu de la Quadra to look for the track through the wet and delicate area of ​​La Rierada. In this area, it is necessary to be especially respectful of the environment.

From the lowest point, the creek of the stream, we will start a long climb that will take us first to the Escletxes del Papiol and the Puig Madrona area; Then you will take us to the trails and races of La Floresta, to Can Cases. At this point we will do a short descent and after a climb to cross the torrent and change the valley. We will arrive at Can Borrell near Sant Cugat del Vallès by a steep descent. From Can Borrell, we will cycle through different slopes that, going up and down, will allow us to reach behind in the Can Coll Environmental Education Center. Crossing the road and the recreation area, we will start a continuous one and at some moments we will climb to the Portell de Valldaura and the Cerro de la Magarola area, where we can only travel along wide track paths. Access to the top of the hill is restricted to cyclists.

Upon reaching the chain, we will continue up towards the Cerro de San Cebrián, in a steep climb, we will pass through an eucalyptus area and when we get to the top we will begin to descend to Coll de l'Erola (Vista Rica) where we will take the road to the Rabassada, until you find the track on the left that goes to Cerro de Miralluny and to the park of the amusement park. From here, we will only subtract the large asphalt ramp to the point where it is high in the Sierra, the Tibidabo (512 meters), where we will enjoy the views and we will recover.
