This part of trail is not good for a road bicycle!

Road bikingGreat!

If you're riding on a hybrid road bike, you can still keep riding when you make it into Lapeer County but keep in mind the trail does get narrow and slightly difficult to maneuver but it's doable. Quite a scenic trail.

The Polly Ann trail in oakland county is mpstly crushed limestone. Once you cross into Lapeer county at Boardman rd it becomes a grass trail. The grass trail makes for a more difficuly bike ride. Overall scenic trail. I would recommend the Oakland county portion.

I bicycle the Polly Ann frequently from Josyle through Oxford. It is well maintained, scenic, and passes by several ponds and lakes with a few areas to stop and take in the aquatic life. Rarely do I experience heavy traffic (except for the section between Drahner and Burdick street in Oxford... this section is also asphalt). There are no areas to stop and purchase a snack, or meal (Restaurants, stores) except for the section that passes through downtown Oxford.

Well maintained trail. Beautifully shaded and a great ride. Most of the trail surface is well packed gravel with some paved areas.

Trail is okay, not very scenic. As the landscape doesn’t change I would recommend biking rather than walking.

Loved this trail only took it from lake Orion to the Village of Leonard. But it was beautiful and well maintained with many areas to stop and rest and have a picnic. Also they have fix it centers along the way to fix your bike if need be.

HikingMuddyOver grown

I've been hiking most of the trail from lake Orion. Most of the trail was in good condition. There was a lot of mud this spring. The northern part of the trail is over grown. I found 2 ticks on myself and 5 on my dog

I've been taking my horse onto various parts of this trail. I like parking in Imlay City best because the footing is grass for miles. I have also parked near General Squire park and it's a little stoney there. I like riding from Leonard parking lot too because you can get off and on various loops on dirt roads and it would even be possible to ride into Addison Oaks park if you rode long enough. The end of the trail for horse riding is M- 24 because you can't go over the bridge and the traffic looked to busy to cross. Great riding for conditioning a horse though and I'm loving it!

Underrated beauty of a trail. Best stretch is Oxford to Leonard.
