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.
