Maple Sugar Tour
Back to Trapp Family Lodge
Join us at the Trapp Family Lodge sugarhouse as we renew the centuries-old tradition of making pure Vermont maple syrup. Every March, when the days become longer and warmer, we start the process of maple sugaring. We still “sugar” the old-fashioned way, using buckets to collect sap and the new method that includes lines direct from the trees to our sugar house. Then, we boil the sap down to syrup in a very large, wood-fired evaporator. The sap and the sugaring process are completely organic; we do not use any chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides.
Our Maple Sugar Tour is a casual, 1-mile hike around the property where you learn about our process and enjoy a tasty maple treat. Meet at the Outdoor Center 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
Fun Fact – All of the maple syrup we serve on property to guests come from our sugar shack on property! We produce over 700 gallons a year!
