It's a legendary climb, and you get a great view of it both on the way up and on the way down.
The road is so narrow in places that you really feel you're climbing.
However, it's a good idea to start early to avoid the rush of cars and the heat.

Montée mythique, on en prend plein la vue aussi bien à la montée que pendant la descente.
On a vraiment l'impression d'escalader tant la route est étroite par endroit.
En revanche bien commencer de bonne heure pour éviter l'affluence de voitures et la chaleur.

Climbed on 18 April 2022. Beautiful spring day and took the route from the museum Departemental in Toulon. From the D46, via Chemin Fort Rouge to Mont Faron. Well known 'challenge' regularly included in major cycling races (e.g. Tour de France 1957, Tour du Haut Var 2019, Tour de La Provence 2021). The road is one-way so this direction is advisable ! Climbfinder's segment goes up to the zoo, but it is also nice to continue to the Fort at the end of the 'top' from where the descent via hairpin bends to Toulon begins. Note it is in its entirety a narrow tourist road, in the summer busy! Magnificent views, including of the 'Trade de Toulon'. Restaurants and shelters along the way.

Beklommen op 18 april 2022. Mooie voorjaarsdag en de route genomen vanaf het museum Departemental in Toulon. Vanaf de D46, via Chemin Fort Rouge naar Mont Faron geklommen. Ook wel bekende ‘uitdaging’ regelmatig opgenomen in grote wielerkoersen (o.m. Tour de France 1957, Tour du Haut Var 2019, Tour de La Provence 2021). De weg is éénrichtingsverkeer dus deze richting is te adviseren ! Het segment van Climbfinder gaat tot de dierentuin (zoo) , maar ook mooi is om door te rijden naar het Fort aan het einde van de ‘top’ vanwaar de afdaling via haarspeldbochten naar Toulon begint. Let op het is in zijn geheel een smalle toeristische weg, in de zomer druk! Prachtige vergezichten o.m. op de ‘Trade de Toulon’. Restauratie en schuilmogelijkheden onderweg.
