Parc de Collserola: Carretera de les Aigues

Overview of Barcelona from Collserola mountain, with the Mediterranean Sea in the background. One can observe the Agbar Tower, La Sagrada Famila or Maphre towers.

Park Collserola is one of the largest urban parks in the world. Easily reachable by public transport. A very popular running route, at the southern end of the park, is Carretera de les Aigues. From this rolling dirt road, there are great views of the city, the Gaudi cathedral, and the Mediterranean, with markers along the way. A treat at sunrise or sunset. Easily accessible by public transport — take the S1 or S2 lines, which run every few minutes, 20 minutes to El Peu del Funicular and then the funicular. Info here. You can then join the path headed in either direction. It is 4.85 miles one-way, and fairly flat. Can get crowded. There are many other trails in the park for running.
