Thunderpaths are oily and black paths that monsters travel on. They are usually hard, gray, and smell acrid or tangy, and are sticky and usually hot. Many cats injure themselves or get killed by the monsters on it, making the Thunderpath be feared by most cats. This thunderpath has to be crossed to get to the Moonstone. ShadowClan cats often use a tunnel underneath the stone to get to every Gathering, and sometimes use it to attack other Clans secretly. The sour tang of the Thunderpaths is usually associated with Twolegplace, as it leads between the Twoleg nests. Animals also get killed on the Thunderpath, (e.g. rabbits) and cats make references to them ("flat as a Thunderpath rabbit"). There are some Thunderpaths that are busier than others, such as this one, where monsters roar by quite regularly. ShadowClan shares a border with ThunderClan here, and farther up the road shares another border with WindClan.
