From the Velodrome we will head towards the Horta cemetery, on Calle escala Dei we will find Alta de Roquetes road. We will get to Collserola for the track that stands just before the Staurus clinic. We will pass through Can Masdeu, Can Ferrer, Turó d'en Fotjà, Portell de Valldaura and Cerro de Magarola; We will go down to Sant Medir to Can Borrell through the Vall de Gausac, we will pass through Coll de la Torrefera, Torre Cendrera, Can Codonyers and Can Coll, information center of the park, open to the public Sundays and public holidays. Crossing the road, we will arrive to Can Catà and the hermitage of Sant Iscle. We will climb towards Coll de la Ventosa and Can Ferrer. Finally, we will go back to Can Masdeu and leave the same accessway to the park, the AO3.

Being a long distance itinerary will pass through different points of the mountain range, this will allow us to see places and landscapes quite varied. We will alternate the two slopes of the mountain range that we will observe clearly different, the Barcelonès with a short but pronounced slope and the Vallès with a slope that goes down smoothly. It is an itinerary of contrasts, since we will go through a valley and at the same time we will make a ridge path, combining this way with the sun and obaga. The set of elements that the landscape draws us, mainly vegetation, will be one of the aspects to be observed.
