The Snow Gauging trail weaves through beautiful aspen and fir stands, and features breathtaking views of the back of Mount Timpanogos. Near the beginning of the trail, you will see the snow gauging station which the trail is named after. The snow gauging station is used to measure annual solid precipitation. From the gauging station, the trail traverses a ridge and wraps down into a canyon that has a small, intermittent stream. There are sections along this trail where the tread is not very wide and defined, but it is still relatively simple to follow. There is one stream crossing along the lower section of this trail. Shortly after crossing SR-92 this trail connects with the Salamander Flat Trail #150. A lesser used trail in the canyon, Snow Gauging has a lot to offer. Trail grades range from 5 to 20 percent.

Alpine Loop is open for the year so this trailhead is now accessible. Trees are still budding and flowers are coming out. Super beautiful!!

Great hike! Hiked uphill first. Too Snow Gaugers to the upper campground and Ridge back to Salamander Flats. Pretty easy hike. Saw a few mule deer and small game. Colors are great right now and should be for a week or 2.

Great hike! Started at Salamander Flats camp site. Hiked up the Snow Gaugers trail and back down the Ridge Trail. Right now the tree color is incredible. Should be great for another week or 2. Saw a few mule deer and lots of small game. I always like to climb first, so ignored Alltrails starting point and flipped the hike. Much more fun and easier this way.

Great trail! Connected with the Willow Hollow trail to make a loop. I wish we had taken the Ridges trail instead to make it a longer hike.

Bottom to top and then skied down willow hollow. It’s rough right now with all the snow and fallen trees but an awesome trail.
