Moel Sych stands at 825 m (2,760 ft) high. It is located to the south west of the summit of Cadair Berwyn. Also forming part of the Berwyn range, making it the second highest point.
You can reach the summit from the parking lot located at Tan-y-pistyll café. Tan-y-pistyll is also home to the spectacular Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, the tallest waterfall in the UK outside of Scotland.
The range was made famous thanks to an apparent UFO-landing that happened in the area on 23 January 1974. It has subsequently come to be known as the ‘Berwyn Mountain UFO Incident’ and is believed to have been a bright meteor that was widely observed over Wales and northern England at the time.
