Dogs and their owners can hike alongside waterfalls, granite boulders, and views of Squaw Valley on this 3.6-mile trek.

Hikers should be sure to follow this general rule: "keep the creek on your right and follow it up for about 2.5 miles until you come to giant granite rock slabs. You will cross over this section and continue up to Shirley Lake." Information on how to access the trailhead, parking, hiking tips, and where dogs are not allowed in Squaw Valley can be found on its official website. Dogs must be leashed if on the AerialTram; however, owners can use their best judgment when deciding to leash them on the trail. See Details
