High Point

This route starts at the Castelldefels train station and climbs through pine forests via Purgatorio to Begues. (Viewpoint, shops, restaurants, water available). Then down through red dirt single tracks mixed with relatively short but tough climbs, as you go further down the route the dirt is gradually replaced with rockier/ looser surface. The final part after the transition across town has a long sustained (30 minutes aprox) climb on asphalt, and the descent is beautiful with uninterrupted views of deep gorges on one hand and the Mediterranean sea on the other.
