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.
