Barcelona to Sant Cugat del Valles (HP) over Matamachos
GPX FILE (ref only; I don't have a gps!)
Difficulty: Moderate to Hard
Terrain: Gravel roads and paths and road.
Time: approx 1:30 hours
Distance: approx 16.2km (one-way)
Max Delta Elevation: 100-340 = 240 meters
This is the path that will get you from Barcelona to Sant Cugat and even to HP. Most of the ride is on forest trails with some access by cars. The hardest part is called Matamachos and is soon after the climb to the top of the first hill. The rest is downhill after that point so it isn't too bad.
