Take the Scenic Route and Discover Bigorno Pass in Corsica
Col de Bigorno is a mountain pass at an elevation of 888m (2,913ft) above the sea level, located in the Haute-Corse department of France on the island of Corsica.
Set high in the Serra di Tenda, on the northern part of the island of Corsica, the road to the summit, also known as Bocca di Bigornu, is totally paved, in pretty bad conditions. It’s called D5. It’s a very curvy drive, with 5 hairpin turns.
The pass is 13.2 km (8.20 miles) long, running south-north from Bigorno to Murato. The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 12% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. The summit is subject to strong north and north-westerly winds. A minor gravel road west of the pass climbs up to a communication station.
