Abstract: A hyperbolic toral automorphism is a map $ f:{T^n} \hookleftarrow$ such that has a linear lifting $ L:{{\mathbf{R}}^n} \hookleftarrow$ without eigenvalues of modulus 1. In this note we prove that the orbit under f of a rectifiable nonconstant path $ \gamma :[a,b] \to {T^n}$ contains a coset of a toral subgroup invariant under same power of f. For $ {C^2}$ paths the same result was proved by J. Franks. For $ {C^0}$ arcs S.G. Hancock proved that it is false.
