Had to stop here was part of the national park service. What a beautiful venue with awesome architecture. Would love to hear a performance here one day to hear the acoustics. Quick stop unlike most other national parks not a normal visitor center. Had to really look for where I get a passport stamp.

This review is for the hike. We've gone multiple times with a 3 and 5 year old. They love the hike, it is about 3-4 miles total, easy to find and signed, and just the right level of challenge. It follows Wolf Creek all the way and circles around the back of the performing arts center, so lots to look at. There's even a small boardwalk section. We actually visited during the pandemic so there was never a concert/parking issues to worry about and it was always completely empty. Wouldn't take someone with walking difficulty though as there is elevation gain and it is a real trail.

Wolftrap is a terrific venue for entertainment, thanks to Mrs. Shouse's gift to Vienna. The theater offers everything from concerts to comedians, ballet to Broadway, and rock to radio shows. We've been to many shows and always enjoyed them, either sitting on the lawn under the stars or on seats inside the open-air pavilion . Parking is free, picnic dinner is available next to the theater, and free van rides are available up the hill. Many concerts are free, such as those on national holidays (ie the Fourth of July with the Armed Forces Band) .Last shows we saw were : ABBA tribute band and Swan Lake ballet.

I’ve attended concerts here for 20 years. It’s always a wonderful setting with top talent. Rent the cushions and pack a picnic for lawn seats!

Wolf Trap is a great place to see a show. Great sound, beautiful design but I had no idea that there were trails through the park that led to other little special spots! We rode our bikes along the trails and it made for a beautiful day!
