The Emperor’s road leads to the numerous farms and to the lakes of Ruffrè. A pleasant oasis for a regenerative pause in the midst of nature. 7 km and 156 m difference in altitude.

After the first piece of the track, which overlaps with both the blue and the red tour, the path becomes more challenging: a rise (cemented for approx. 100 m) and the following drops lead to the calm lakes of Ruffrè, the village of farms. The most pleasant and characteristic part of the tour, known as “Sentiero Dria al Fos”, starts at this point and follows an antique irrigation canal. On some parts of this section, the route is carved into the rocks, allowing a minimal but constant rise. You come to small bridges and some wooden fences, which remind of past times (caution: the path becomes narrower). Following the slightly higher located path of this route parallel to the other Nordic Walking Park routes, you will come to a viewing platform, allowing you to admire the Mount Roen and the Brenta-Dolomites.
