The Thompson Trail is the Township’s newest trail. It circles the fields of the Thompson Family’s farm between
Union Hill Road, Tinker Hill Lane and Tinker Hill Road. This gorgeous trail is wonderful for hikers and horses. The
trail’s blazes are white. It connects with the Horse Shoe Trail at Union Hill Road, at the power
lines / pipeline just up the hill from the overpass.
- Park at the end of Tinker Hill Lane in the cul de sac. Or park at the Great Valley Nature Center, and follow
the Horse Shoe Trail blazes to the left along Hollow Road, across Rte 29 and up Aldham Road. The Horse Shoe
Trail will turn right off of Aldham.
- At the old railroad tracks where the Horse Shoe Trail turns right again, follow the signs and white blaze to the
left onto the Thompson Trail.
- Horses and hikers should continue down the powerline to cross Union Hill. Turn right and follow the shoulder
up the hill and turn left onto the trail beside the stone wall.
