At the town of Ponte di Legno, across the wooden bridge, you turn left towards the Passo Gavia. It's a gradual climb for about 4 kms. The road is paved, but after a couple of km, it turns to a dirty narrow one lane road, where it reaches suddenly 16% The Passo Gavia a really hard climb with 18% in parts. It never really gets below 10% with steady, steep grades, lots of switchbacks.Every few hundred meters there’s a little parking place carved out of the mountain, for cars to pull over and pass… The top is paved for about 3 km. Then it turns back to dirt on the way down, pretty much a one lane road with again, an incredible number of switchbacks…
