This is a fun route. Starting in Ugine, you take the right fork at the old factory. After a very steep series of switchbacks you are on the side of the valley going through pine forests and small hamlets. The road surface isn''t great and it''s narrow. Once you get to Crest Voland you then start heading up again, and the last kms into Saisies are tough. The descent from Saisies through Hauteluce can be harrowing with traffic. Highly recommended if you can start from Ugine.
