Twilight Trail is a large woodsy trail that connects Twilight Town to Creepy Steeple. It is found during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Twilight Trail is a dark area full of bare trees and dark green grass; the ground on which Mario must travel is purple in color. During Chapter 4 of the game, Mario must travel back and forth throughout these woods many times in order to find The letter "p" and defeat Doopliss. In order to gain access to Twilight Trail, Mario must enter a pipe — which Flurrie must unveil — and head towards the dark forest. Flurrie must also blow away certain parts of the woods to enable Mario to continue forth. In these woods, many enemies can be found; it is also hard to avoid contact with these enemies, as the paths in which they travel are considerably narrow. Towards the end of the forest, a large rock must be pushed in the background by Mario in order for its larger version in the path to move. Twilight Trail is also the home for the dangerous Amazee Dayzees.

In a yellow ? Block in the woods' first screen, a Thunder Rage can be retrieved. In the second screen, a red ? Block holds the Hammer Throw badge.
