Trails Committee

Trail Town Action Plan

Mission Statement

The Thompson Trails Committee will build, maintain and promote the use of public trails in Thompson, and work to connect Thompson Trails to neighboring communities. We will work with landowners, non-profit organizations and local, state and federal officials.

What We Do

The Town of Thompson is lucky to have within its borders many publicly accessible trails available for hiking or easy walking, nature study, biking, horseback riding and boating. These trails are diverse in terrain. Some provide handicap accessibility and some connect to trail systems in neighboring communities. They include Town-owned and State-owned properties, the Wyndham Land Trust, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineering land.

The Trails Committee has organized activities for the public, including hikes, nature and historical walks, horseback rides, and canoe paddles. We have participated in Connecticut Trails Day, Community Day, and Walktober. We host a fundraiser in November at the West Thompson Lake: the Turkey Trot (a 5K cross-country race) and the Turkey Wobble (a 2.5/5K walk) for teams and individuals. Registration is available on line on Thompson Recreation website.

Trail Maps are available at the Thompson Library, at Town Hall, or click here. You may also access trails on the downloadable app. 

Members are appointed for an indefinite term.
