What is up with the Lapeer County Polly Ann Trail?
The Lapeer County section (north of Bordman Rd.) is not publicly funded. It is maintained by the Friends of the Lapeer County Polly Ann Trail, a small group of volunteers. The trail is maintained as funding allows. The Lapeer PAT is very rustic in most areas and suitable for walkers, equestrians or rough mountain biking. It is paved through the residential area of Imlay City. Please consider supporting the Lapeer County section as well.
