The weather and the expectations
When we have travelled it was the winter season. The number of hikers were significantly reduced. There was a lot of snow all around the hills and the trail itself. The water was cold but not for us as we have tried jumping into it briefly. Highly recommended to bring your togs and spare clothes when you come over here to Goynuk Canyon. The most beautiful part of the canyon we have unfortunately missed out on as the lake was far too strong to walk across it. Therefore, recommendation is to travel during the spring or autumn times when you can enjoy the full experience that the Goynuk canyon can provide.
