My Plea to Our Hennepin County Commissioners: "Give this trail a name"

The trail has gone cold
Along the trail the posted name is "Hennepin County LTR Transit Corridor". I know what that dreary title portends, but can that just be the subheading on the sighns (sic) to a more colorful moniker for the present? Let's show some spirit of creativity.
On the other side of The Lake, The Luce Line Trail is named after an old and defunct train line ( A fun, appropriate name with letters that also spells "clue"). With the historical significance of this trail that runs from Hopkins, through Excelsior, to Victoria, it deserves a real name. How about "The Raspberry", or "Victoria's End" .... well maybe not. I would be happy with "The St. Louis Trail", after the train line that once ran there long ago. Just a nudge.
