Doing some exercise with while enjoying cool views
If you have a car, or a scooter or you simply don’t mind taking the subway for enjoying jogging in a nice area, away from the traffic with nice views, going to La Carretera de les Aigües is a brilliant idea. That’s what guys from Barcelona like doing after a tough day in the office.
For enjoying that nice atmosphere (much better than running in La Diagonal), you should get the Ferrocarrils (FGC – L7) and get out at Av. Tibidabo. From there, you should take the bus (196) and get out at the end of Av. Tibidabo. Walk a little bit further following the road. After 300mts, you’ll find the beginning of La Carretera de les Aigües.
If you start running and following that road, you will find different tracks. The easiest one is quite flat, bordering Collserola, you’ll have stunning views from Barcelona. It’s 10 kms long. There are other tracks steeper also nice, and not that popular.
