Tilliacher Joch: courage is required to drive to the summit

The road to the summit is an old military track. At the summit there are bunkers from World War I. 
On the Austrian side, the road starts from Obertilliach. The surface of the road is gravel in good conditions. The road was resurfaced in 2003. It has some loose gravel. At a gate just before the pass the road turns more into a wide foot path that is very steep and it could be difficult even for 4wd vehicles.

On the Italian side, the trail starts from San Pietro di Cadore. The surface of the road is worse. It’s a rocky path extremely difficult. The road hasn’t been resurfaced. It’s extremely rough but the asphalt section starts soon.
