“Not a particularly special trail, but it gets you where you need to go.”
— Megan Wilder
The Lower Village Trail starting from the base of the Mountaineer Express chairlift passes gently downhill though pleasant woods paralleling Deer Hollow Road. Upon leaving the trees and reaching a maintenance shed, turn left on Deer Creek Estates Drive, cross Deer Hollow Road, and follow Deer Hollow Road downhill until just past Harmony Drive.
Turn left on a dirt and partially paved unmarked service road before reaching another ski area maintenance shed. Follow the wide, grassy Jordanelle ski run downhill, through a tunnel to the base of the Jordanelle Gondola. The Lower Village trail is about half singletrack, half dirt road/ski run. Note: bikes are allowed on this trail.
