I have wild creeping thyme which does a nice ground cover and can be walked on. It even releases a nice aroma when walked on!! I think that's the one you're looking for.

There is also magic carpet thyme, but it's thicker and flowers alot so it can't be walked on.

Definitely Woolly Thyme, Joni-O. I sowed this variety a few years ago in patio stone gaps as suggested by BF, in fact.

Last warning, BF; keep a garden journal. The practice will save a lot of thyme. LOL

You're allowed to say HELL, Venice. laffs

Gonna give one last-ditch try in growing all kinds of Thyme in patio stone cracks, especially Andre of Edmunston's variety. Cheaper than building a deck over the eyesore. In previous location, smeared yogurt mixed with present moss segments on rocks in attempt to promote moss growth. F for failure in that experiment. chuckles
