Crete de la Soumaye is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.348m (7,703ft) above the sea level, located in Saint-Lary-Soulan, a commune in the Hautes-Pyrénées department in south-western France.
The road to the summit, located in the Pyrenees, a range of mountains in southwest Europe that forms a natural border between France and Spain, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s a chairlift access trail. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. The top gives you a spectacular 360-degree view of all the surrounding mountain peaks, too.
