About Collserola La Rierada to Escaletes and El Papiol:
This is a beautiful 12km EASY walking route in the collserola natural park starting at La Floresta on the Valles FGC lines. The trail follows the course of the vallvidrera river passing via a sheltered forest trail with waterfalls and variety of trees and wild flowers.
The trail gets to a village called la Rierada which has a restaurant called Can Castelvi. It is best to book a table in advance by calling +34 936 800 239. After Can castelvi the route enters the forest again and continues following Vallvidrera river passing by the rural Can Blanes farmhouse and ruined windmill.
Nearer to Moulins de Rei town the route passes via Can Rebella farmhouse rural restarant. This is a former wine making farmhouse that has been converted into a spectacular rural restaurant. We ate here when doing this trail! It is best to book in advance by calling.
After A hearty lunch in Can Rebella the trail swings round the back of the farmhouse and parallels the town at the edge of the forest to get to the natural rock formation of fissures called las escalates.
After exploring the inside of the fissures the trail leaves the forest and enters El Papiol town passing via some historic buildings and the castle. The route terminates in El Papiol Renfe station on the R4 Roadlies Line.
