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!

Just stopped in to see it as I am a huge Sound of Music fan. Was very charming and I enjoyed looking at all the pictures and wandering the grounds.

It costs nothing to drive onto the von Trapp property, park your car for free, and get out and wander the hills and trails and gardens. The setting is breathtaking. We recommend you grab a piece of their homemade German chocolate cake in the Austrian...More
