Shirley Canyon

Shirley Canyon is a 4 mile hike from the tram to high camp at Squaw Valley, with roughly 2400 feet of elevation gain. About 3/4ths of the way to the top lies Shirley Lake, a fun snack and swim spot. Just above the lake, take a left up Solitude (not right up Shirley, it's longer and not as pretty) to the tram. The Squaw tram is free to hikers riding down (not up, unless you have an ikon pass) and is open all summer and on weekends in September.
