The Polly Ann Trail begins in Orion Township and continues northeast through Oxford, Addison, and Leonard to the Oakland-Lapeer county line at Bordman Road. Potential connections include the Paint Creek Trail, Bald Mountain Recreation Area, Macomb Orchard Trail, Clinton River Trail, County Parks, and numerous recreational and public places.

The trail surface is crushed aggregate and some asphalt surface in densely populated areas. The new trail surface will be monitored and compacted as necessary. A separate path for horses is planned on the north segment of the trail. Preliminary development is complete, including foot bridges and some signage.

The trail is open from dawn to dusk year round. Motorized vehicles are prohibited. Dogs should be leashed and under control. Do not litter or disturb vegetation or wildlife. Hunting is not allowed. All users yield to horses; cyclists yield to all other users. Helmets for riders are not required, but are recommended. Please be courteous to your fellow users and adjacent property owners.

There are public parking area options along the trial, especially in Oxford and Orion Township. The Blanka Trailhead in Leonard is the best place to park. It is large enough to accommodate horse trailers and has a rest room. Please obey local ordinances and do not park on private property. For details on access and parking, please download the Polly Ann Trail map.
