Col de la Paré

An old military road to the top of Col de la Paré

Col de la Paré is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.412m (7,913ft) above the sea level, located in the Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.

The road to the summit is gravel. It’s an old military road. It’s narrow, pretty steep and closed in winters. After rain, sections of road can become decidedly hazardous when fast-flowing creek crossings and slippery mud can cause road closures. 4x4 vehicle recommended. The road was built between 1902 and 1907. Near the summit there’s a military fortress called Ouvrage Les Rochilles, a lesser work of the Maginot Line's Alpine extension.
