Moel Sych & Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfalls

Date of Walk : Wednesday 3rd January 2013

Distance : 5.02 miles
Time Taken : 2 hours 40 mins
Elevation Gain : 1801 feet

A short walk which started close to the Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfalls in the Berwyns. These waterfalls are quite spectacular, especially with the amount of rainfall deposited recently. As we had parked near the waterfalls, we decided to visit them at the end of the walk. The walk was to the summit of Moel Sych, but this is certainly a summit I need to revisit at some point as sadly views were non existent.

It was a soggy and damp walk to the summit, and in fact it rained so much that the camera never left my bag until the waterfall, with the exception of a quick summit photo, in order to imagine the view!

The waterfall is the tallest single drop waterfall in the UK. (240 feet) I would certainly recommend a visit if you are in the Berwyns.
