Your Safety Paths and Trails Committee is actively pursuing additional connections to the Paint Creek Trail and has been working with the DNR, Oakland County Planning Department, and Orion Township for a connection through Bald Mountain Recreation Area from Kern Road east to the Paint Creek Trail. This would afford opportunities to link the south end of Oakland Township to Lake Orion, Bald Mountain north, Marshview Park, Addison Oaks and Cranberry Lake Park. The SPTC is also actively investigating options for linking the township trail system from the Silverbell/Gunn/Gallagher Road area to the Paint Creek Trail.

Safety Paths and Trails 10-Year Strategy Plan 

A new Safety Paths and Trails Strategy Plan prepared by the Safety Paths and Trails Committee (SPTC) is now near completion. An open house was held on September 21, 2016 for resident input and review. The results of citizen input at the Open House and an analysis of SPT goals, strategies, and feasibility are currently being finalized by Township Planners. The completed Strategy Plan, along with a feasibility study completed in 2013, will help guide the SPTC in planning future connections throughout Oakland Township.
