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!

Enjoyed dinner at the Lodge -- vintage Austrian menu. Vienerschnitzel, but pork, from their own farm and gardens.

This family has done a great job of keeping this lodge updated with the times. They change with what people want to do with their families. Who wouldn't love coming here any time of the year.
