Col du Brabant-north

Profile Col du Brabant-north

This is a short and steep (mean slope 9%) ascent from La Bresse to the Col du Brabant, with 261 meters to climb. The beginning is found by taking the main road from the centre of La Bresse towards Cornimont and entering the Rue des Proyes on the left hand side. On its way to the pass the narrow and quiet road passes widespread houses, gardens en meadows. The view on La Bresse and its surroundings becomes wider while one gains height but make sure to enjoy the view during the tour because at the col La Bresse is no longer visible. Towards the end, the slope increases slightly to reach a maximum of some 10%. At the col there are two restaurants/bars, a chapel and a ski lift.
