The quiet road of the Col des Champs
connects Colmar in the valley of the Verdon
with St-Martin-'d'Entraunes in the valley of the Var.
The entrance from the D908 is somewhat hidden.
Then, a narrow road winds itself up the mountain,
in the beginning with many hair pin turns.
For a long stretch climbing is done in a relatively dense forest
but in the second half of the climb views open
towards high summits.
Steepness is very regular, mostly ~8%.
The highest point is reached a few hundred meters
before the location marked as the pass.
I hardly met other cyclists on this pass
though it is a part of the loop Col d'Allos - Col des Champs -
Col de la Cayolle from Barcelonnette.
