Faux Col de Restefond

The road to the pass, located within the Mercantour National Park, is asphalted. It’s called C4 (Route de Nice) and is closed between October and May. This pass is strictly speaking not on the road to Col de la Bonette, but most would claim to have visited it even though they do not bother to go the 50 metres on the gravel road below. The pass is located next to Col de la Bonette, Cime de la Bonette and Col de Restefond.
