Nature Trail in Ridracoli
Welcome to the Ridracoli valley
The events that have given the current face to the Bidente Valley of Ridracoli bring us back in time of many years. But the event that most changed its appearance, between 1976 and 1983, is the construction of the homonymous dam, whose lake stretches for over 3 km inside the park. What is the result? Today we discover a valley with many notable naturalistic elements, where tourism has allowed the creation of important tourist services and the conservation of some of the houses that were once inhabited. But the protagonist, in Ridracoli more than elsewhere, is still the water, which flows the Bidente Valley, which sometimes still moves the blades of the mills, once scattered along the courses of the Apennine ditches, which fills the dam and quenches thousands of people throughout Romagna.
