Description Col de la Bonette
The col de la Bonette (2802 m) is the highest paved mountain path (not col) in France. The ascent of the north side is a must for every mountain biker. After a slight ascent of 10 kilometers you turn right on the D66 in Jausiers. From there it is still 1600 meters to the top at about 7 percent on average. Via long bends you leave the Ubaye valley after which the road narrows and follows some hairpin bends. The landscape becomes more rough and along some lakes you reach the ruined Caserne de Restefond (2500 m). Two kilometres further is the exit to the Col de la Moutiàre. There you'll see the characteristic cone-shaped top of the Bonette for the first time. First you reach the Col de la Restefond, at an altitude of 2678 meters. From there you can reach the summit and memorial stone at an altitude of 2802 metres via a specially constructed steep route. Via a path you can go to the orientation table on the Cime de la Bonette at 2862 meters altitude. In good weather you have a beautiful 360° view of the surrounding Alps.
