The walking and hiking trails at Trapp Lodge offer a variety of difficulty to fit your style and comfort level. The trail map is very good and shows easy, moderate and difficult levels. Some trails are also for mountain bikers which is also very popular but you don't have bikers wizzing by hikers. Hiking is peaceful and so beautiful. The... More

We enjoyed our visit to the outdoor area of the Trapp Family Lodge although I have no particular attraction to "The Sound of Music," (everyone thinks the movie is a true story as it happened, which it is NOT, so I find that kind of annoying.).

This is a really beautiful area. The grounds are well taken care of. The staff was wonderful and helpful. This is an awesome place for xcountry skiing and snow shoeing. The trails were still awesome. We rented and snow shoed. The equipment was in great shape. And we received great instruction from the attendant we saw an owl fly right... More

My wife and I cross country ski about once a year. We found the Trapp Family Lodge to have a great variety of groomed trails. The trails were in very good shape and had maps available throughout. We skied from the lodge up to the cabin and had lunch. It was fun but challenging. The cabin is about 800 vertical... More

It's a bit of a tourist trap, and once you get passed the Sound of Music hype the place loses a lot of it's appeal. We went for dinner, which was very underwhelming and far too expensive. I would recommend going for a day trip, max, and don't plan your entire vacation over it. I will say though, that the... More

I was just at the Trapp Family Outdoor Center yesterday, and was at the Cabin way, way up at the top- and enjoyed talking to all the friendly skiers who were there, and the 2 super friendly people who work in the "cafe" at the beautiful end of the rainbow. The ski trails were, and always seem to be perfectly... More

Just returned from the Trapp Family Lodge and sued their outdoor center for an outing of nordic skiing - well groomed trails and and equipment that was in good working order.

Loved it. We've visited the trails here several times through the years. This is probably the best cross country skiing in Stowe. The Trappe Family Lodge hotel and restaurant are also excellent. If you stay in the hotel you can ski in-out to the xcountry trails.
