How to get there See the description for Colle dei Morti/Col di Morts (Fauniera) (2481m). The Colle del Vallonetto is found between Colle dei Morti and Colle d’Esischie (2366m). They are all very close to each other and as the road goes down to Colle d’Esischie if you come from Colle dei Morti, you can easily miss the sign for this pass going that way.
Other comments There is a view into the valley where a rough road goes to Passo Gardetta (it is likely too rough for a road bike). That road looked very attractive with red sand at the beginning and going out in the wild mountainous valley ahead (but it was raining a lot upon my visit). This road starts at Colle di Valcavera (2416m) on the other side of the Colle dei Morti.
