A newly created theme trail starts at the tourist information office in Tirolo, right in the centre of the village, and is just as the name suggests: grand. The Ruling Trail is a panoramic trail that tells of castles, irrigation channels and the Merano region itself. From Tirolo to the majestic Tyrol Castle, the trail follows path no. 26, then it leads past the Schneeweisshof snack station towards Velloi.
Ideally, this is followed by a leisurely - stately - rest and then the turnoff to the Ruling Trail (Herrschaftsweg, in German) no. 28. The path now takes you about one kilometre up the stairs to the Innerfarmer Farm and past the nearby Ausserfarmer Farm to just below the Farmerkreuz, an idyllic lookout point that offers wonderful panoramic views, especially on clear autumn days during the Törggele season. Afterwards, after a total of 6.7 km and two hours, you return to the centre of Tirolo village (Dorf Tirol) through the orchards. The highest point is at 818 m a.s.l.
