Collada del Vent
Collada del Vent is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.301m (7,549ft) above the sea level, located in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France, near the border with Spain and the Autonomous Community of Catalonia.
The road to reach the summit, located within the Réserve Naturelle de Py, is extreme. Only 4x4. The trail is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point.
At the summit there’s a mountain shelter called Refuge du Pla Guillem. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep, with sections up to 8%. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road.
