This is either a great descent, long, nice flow, from the Garraf Park to the bottom of Vallcarca Mine OR a brutal ascent from the sea up to the park's top. Your choice but I recommend the first. Trails is wide; cars (4x4) could pass too. Best avoided when it's raining for the risk of flash-floods.

Access Info

Access from the top of the Garraf Park or from the Vallcarca Mine near the Plaja dels Gossos.

for slow riding down i agree it is GREEN but when riding fast it should be BLUE because its very easy to loose grip on a kind of dry gravel...
