After a crazy summer we finally had a chance to head out for a couple days of family fun. We'd originally planned to do the second mine tour but they had closed for the season the day before. Making new plans on a lazy day we decided to head out for a short family hike. We hadn't spent much time at Goldeye Lake before and since we'd often heard about it we decided to give it a try. Maybe our expectations were too high but we were a little disappointed with this hike. While pleasant and a great option for an evening stroll, we found that this walk didn't offer views or an experience as good as nearby Fish Lake. Visit for the full trail guide. TO TRAILHEAD: The trail starts at the Goldeye Lake Provincial Recreation Area, 8 km west of Nordegg on Highway 11. On the access road, follow the signs toward the lake and campground (sites 1-19). The trailhead offers a dock, picnic area, campground and dry toilets.
