Oakland County Polly Ann Trail

Other Power Driven Mobility Device (OPDMD) Policy


In November, 2011, the Polly Ann Trail Management Council (PATMC) adopted the federally mandated OPDMD Policy that allows access to any publicly-funded trail for persons with limited mobility. 


To summarize:

Disabled persons may access the Oakland County Polly Ann Trail without barriers using a motorized, non-gas powered vehicle that is not wider than 36" and is operated at no more than 5 mph. Please read the entire Polly Ann Trail OPDMD Policy and disclaimers before accessing the trail.




Those disabled persons who wish to apply for special permission to use a motorized vehicle that is outside of the existing restrictions may do so by returning the OPDMD Special Permission Application to the Trail Manager.




Please note, the Polly Ann Trail is still considered a non-motorized trail.  Any non-disabled person who uses a motorized vehicle on the trail (car, truck, ATV, snowmobile, etc.) or a disabled person operating a vehicle outside the restrictions and without the proper permit will be prosecuted. To prevent abuse of the policy, trail inspections and patrols from local law enforcement have increased. Adjacent landowners and trail users are asked to increase their awareness and report any suspicious activity to their local law enforcement agency immediately.
