    I love and miss the French/Italian Alps...

    I'm sure, you recognize some of the places when you compare them with the other pics.

    No bike pics, sorry :D

    Lovely post. Great shots and a great selection of off road routes. But how easy is it to find those routes?

    If I go to the locations and passes you've mentioned... are the off road sections pretty obvious or do you really need to know them in advance or have a guide? I want to take my 990 Adv. I like just exploring with no particular plan. Are there lots of these gravel paths around? Could you explain how to find some of them?

    Many thanks,

    PL

    It's all pretty clear once you get there, the best you can do is just go there and buy yourself a topographic map of the region, this shows all the possible footpaths in that specific area, then you can just plan out routes how you want them ;)
