Geocache Description:

"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Der Col des Mosses verbindet das südlich gelegene Aigle (unteres Rhonetal) mit Château d'Oex im Norden (Pays d'Enhaut). Die ganzjährig befahrbare Strasse ist grosszügig angelegt. Auf ihrem südlichen Abschnitt bietet sie wunderbare Aussichtspunkte (teils mit Bänklein zum Loggen), auf der Passhöhe findest du unter 2000 Parkplätzen sicher auch einen freien für dich, damit du die sensationelle Ansicht der umliegenden Berge geniessen kannst. Dann, im nördlichen Abschnitt führt die Strasse durch die Gorge de la Torneresse, einer tief eingeschnittenen Schlucht (ebenfalls mit einem Lookout bei N 46° 26.826 E 7° 07.150).

Situated in the heart of the Alps of the Caton Vaud, sorrounded by numerous magnificent mountain peaks is "Col des Mosses". It connects Aigle in the South with famous Château d'Oex in the north of it. Its easy access is open throughout th year. You will enjoy wonderful lookouts riding up from south (some of them have got even a bench to sit down and log), the huge mountains on the pass itself and descending on the north part you may have a look down into the "Gorge de la Torneresse". There's a lookout too at N 46° 26.826 E 7° 07.150.
