Thompson Trail runs northwest in Stanley Park, from the Bridle Path to Rawlings Trail. It is named after C.W. Thompson, Park Commissioner 1937-1938, 1940-1942. As are most trails in the Park, it is highly attractive to the eye, and because of its location, lightly travelled. It is heavily wooded, and runs amidst great amounts of splendid, tightly gathered greenery, the shades of whose colour are especially vibrant in the high, bright light of the height of summer.
