Take the train to Terrassa's last station, and jog from there. Should be around ~10km, +/-500m, so a couple of hours if I take some geocaching into account.
Geohash seems to be out of the path and could potentially face a situation like this one, but cartography shows a path that is not on OSM which passes relatively close (so, maybe filling that later) and satellite imagery suggest a dry-ish area with not that dense vegetation, so if approach from south is not feasible, I can try from north.
Very nice. Once in Terrassa I started my jog. I was right on the edge of the city, so passed by a few fields, a television Studio that used to be an abandoned hospital and then the first hills. An abandoned hospital? I know what you might think and yes.. it was filled with bad vibes, urban legends full of ghosts and such. After the reformation not anymore..
Then stated the ascension. More fast walking than jogging, but kept a good pace. I deviated a bit to go to the Sant Joan Hill where I had a beautiful view of the area. And behind me (north) the iconic La Mola with its monastery on the top.
Now I approached the hash and found the hidden path easily. But approach from south was not that doable, so I did it from north, and dominating the slope, I managed to reach the hash coordinates.
After that continued my jog with a two more hills, where I was rewarded again with some stupendous views and now back down. That was the easy part. It was nice to discover this area.
At the end it was 11km, +/-550m
