English (castellano debajo):

We started from the parking of the cable car which goes from Kies to Mettmen. The parking is for free and there are several of them so even though there were lots of cars there were still some spots available.

From here we have several options. The longest and easiest is the path that allows you to go by bike towards Aueren. The shortest one would be the one that goes up straight to Mettmen, but we decided to take it for the descend so we ended with the third option.
Since the very beginning the path goes up. You will go through super nice areas, forest, small mountain paths, but never technically difficult. There is a moment where there is a path turning left. It is not indicated as a route but it will be a shortcut (steeper and shorter). We decided to turn right and keep on the original one.

Once in Rossgletti (just a hut), you turn left and keep still going up for another good 30 minutes until you get to the peak. Even there you won't see the dam. You still need few more minutes till you reach it.

Along the dam there are various places where you can rest for lunch. There are benches, bins, bbq places or you can just descend up to the water so just need to make sure you chose the spot you prefer the most.

On the way down you pass next to a restaurant with lots of things for kids and actually very good food (or just for a snack or dessert). You need to deviate for around a minute from the track but it's well indicated.

From this point till the end is a nice and slippery some times as it's not mountain trail but they have paved weirdly half of the way.

Nice route, a bit exigent at the beginning, but totally worth it with the amazing views and piece along the way.


Castellano:

Empezamos desde el parking del telecabina que te lleva de Kies a Mettmen. El parking es gratis y además hay bastantes por lo que incluso aunque haya muchos coches habrá huecos disponibles.

Desde ahí tienes varias opciones. La más larga y más fácil es el camino por el que podrías llegar en bicicleta hasta Aueren. El más corto sería el que va directo a Mettmen, pero nosotros decidimos dejar ese para la vuelta así que nos decidimos por la tercera opción.
Desde el inicio el camino sube. Atravesarás unas zonas muy bonitas, bosques, pequeños caminos de montaña, pero nada técnicamente difícil. Hay un momento en el que hay un desvío hacia la izquierda. No está indicado pero es un atajo (más corto y más empinado). Nosotros decidimos seguir por la derecha y seguir por el trazado original.

Una vez llegado a Rossgletti (una cabaña), hay que desviarse a la izquierda y seguir subiendo otros buenos 30 minutos hasta llegar a la cima. E incluso una vez en la cima no verás el embalse. Necesitarás aun varios minutos más hasta conseguirlo.

Alrededor del embalse hay varios sitios donde descansar para comer algo. Hay bancos con vistas, papeleras, sitios para hacer fuego o simplemente puedes descender hasta el agua así que asegúrate de elegir el luegar que más te guste.

Durante el descenso pasarás al lado de un restaurante con un montón de juegos para niños y donde la comida está muy bien 8aunque sea simplemente para un snack o una tarta casera). Tienes que desviarte un minuto pero está todo muy bien indicado.
