 Col des Champs 

Col des Champs (elevation 2,087 m (6,847 ft)) is a high mountain pass in the Alps at the border between the departments of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Alpes-Maritimes in France. It connects Saint-Martin-d’Entraunes and Colmars, joining the valleys of the Var River and the Verdon River. Together with the Col de la Cayolle and the Col d’Allos it forms part of a popular round trip for cyclists. Starting from Saint-Martin-d’Entraunes, the climb is 16.5 km gaining 1,055 m (3,461 ft), resulting in an average of 6.4%. The state of the pavement is generally good on this side. No signposts for cyclists are placed on this side. However, every kilometre a sign indicates the altitude, as well as the distance to the summit (uphill) or the next villages (uphill and downhill). The Col des Champs only featured in the Tour de France once, in 1975.
