A gravel road to Colle d’Ancoccia in the Cottian Alps
Colle d’Ancoccia is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.533m (8,310ft) above the sea level, located in the province of Cuneo, on the far south west of the region of Piedmont, in Italy.
Set high in the Cottian Alps, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s an old military road with a modest slope. Adverse weather conditions can prompt closure of the road.
Tucked away in the northern part of the country, the road is 37.1 km (23.05 miles) long starting on the paved SP113 road, to the south of Marmora. The drive offers stunning views. Along the path are many obsolete military barracks.
