At the Trapp Family Lodge Outdoor Center the question isn’t what to do. The question is, where do you start? From sunrise to sunset, and in every season, there is an invigorating adventure or relaxing activity waiting for you at every turn. The Trapp Family Lodge is a 2,500 acre mecca for the outdoor and nature enthusiast. In the Winter there is cross country skiing, back country skiing and snowshoeing. In the Summer there is mountain biking, disc golf, hiking,Nordic walking and even concerts in our meadow. The lists go on and on for people of all ages!

Beautiful place to walk or cross country ski. There are beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and lots of fairly level trails to walk through the woods. They do charge to use their trails, even in the summer and fall, which surprised me.

There was not a window you could lookout of that didn't have and awesome view. The fall colors were spectacular. The interior of the lodge was comfortable and furnished beautifully. The breakfast buffet was the best I have had in all my travels. It's a...More

We were nearby and always enjoyed "The Sound of Music" so we negotiated the detours and construction to get here. Glad we had the time to enjoy the views and the day. Wish we were able to come when the history tour was offered.

Stopped in for lunch. The server was excellent and split our dishes so we could share. Kombucha on tap was great.

No, you don't have to be a guest at the Inn. My wife (whose favorite movie is "The Sound of Music") and I were able to view the presentation and walk the grounds of the Inn. Re children, it would be interesting for older... More
