The LP Trail is an intermediate level or higher multi-use trail, which travels along the northwest side of Thunderhill. The first leg of the trail leads to the Diamond Slide and is worth a visit. From the Diamond Slide Area, the LP Trail continues east (Junction 3) over the slopes of Thunderhill, before returning back up to the boundary line. Note, currently there are no trail markers but you will find several junction points along the trail. The junctions at the far east end of the trail (#4, #5 & #6) are points where the trail has taken an alternative route. Junction #7 is where the trail joins onto the snowmobile trail and junction #8 is where you will encounter a fork in the road. Although it is tempting to take a left here (since the sign states "Thunderhill Ski Hill Left"), you will take a right and head back up to the boundary line. The trail crosses a few intermittent streams so caution should be used if hiking/biking the trail during spring runoff. During the winter, the boundary trail can blow in but is passable with snowshoes. Overall the trail offers a great hike across the northeastern slopes of Thunderhill. Trails are maintained by the Tread the Thunder Mountain Bike Club.
