Col de la Luzette

Located within the Cévennes National Park, in south-central France, the road to the summit (also known as Col de la Lusette) is paved. It’s called Route Départementale 329 (D329). This is the hardest climb you can find in the whole Massif Central.

The pass is usually open all year round. It’s 14.7 km (9.13 miles) long with 15 hairpin turns. This climb has many irregularities, some real steep parts, and that's why you don't see the same profile on every website. The climb hits about 14-15% through some of the corners.
