Logan to revamp Trail access

Jun 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Logan Banner

The words "Hatfield and McCoy" have taken on national interest since the airing of a phenomenally successful mini-series on the History Channel around Memorial Day, and now the City of Logan is looking at making some accommodations to riders of the Hatfield-McCoy Trails.

Instead of putting trailheads around old houses were poor people are. Why not put them in areas such as Chief Logan Park, Mitchell Heights and Middleburg and such?
The houses are nicer and the out of towners wouldn't have to look at poor peoples houses.
Why is it when a trail gets put in they put it in the ugliest nastiest places around?
Why don't they put them in the more elite areas that the county is proud of?
If you want to impress visitors, put the trails in a suitable place to impress them.
I'm sure the fine folks with fine brick homes and small mansions in Logan county wouldn't mind welcoming out of state visitors riding by their homes.
Though, I could be wrong. Maybe that is why the trails are put in the poor areas, because the elite citizens of Logan have the pull to say not in my backyard and the poor, with no pull, have to take the trails in, with no say so in the matter.
I think the concept of the H & C trail was to improve the local enconomy and put the trail heads so that area busineses can benefit financially from the trail riders.

Therefore putting the trail heads in the areas you suggested would not do this. However more than that, I think the residents of those areas would not want the ATV traffic, noise, nor the riders in their neighborhoods, even though some may have businesses that benefit from the trail riders.

That is a good idea and I am not certain,but I believe there is a law on the books concerning abandoned property and condemned property.I am no where near certain what that law is but I know there is one lol.There is also a law on the books about being able to fine homeowners for filth and such,but again I am not certain what that law is either.Some years back I remember the city council lady going around talking to homeowners about their responsibility for keeping property clean,grass cut,removing old junk vehicles,etc etc...they made it clear at that time that due to fire hazard they have the right to condemn property that posed a fire hazard ,and or health hazard.But you have gotten me thinking this morning and I will try to get in touch with some people I know to see if I can find out what those laws are.I just think it would be wonderful if people would put as much effort into making Logan nice again as what they put into bitching about all the problems we have.I love Logan or I would not be here,but at this minute I am ashamed of what all of us residence as a whole have let it become.
There are city and county laws, but they are not enforced.

The City of Logan attempted to have the property owners billed for the cleanup. Don't think that worked very well, you can't get blood from a turnip.

I think the laws should be changed that if a property owner allows the property to become an eye sore, and nuisance to neighbors and become unsafe (danger of falling in to the road or streets) the county or state should be able to seize the property, clean it up, then auction to highest bidder to recoup the cost of cleanup. If this was a law, then maybe the property owners would take care of their property.

Why do these property owners hold onto these properties and let them go? Some are heirship, some just don't care. Look around Cherry Tree, West Logan on the hill side, Rt. 44, many areas, not just the city of Logan.......nor just in Logan County..........

Well, if you are at home you wouldn't be down here riding. If you don't know what a mule is then you probably don't even trail ride. Hint, hint. It has four wheels. No I pick up garbage on Mondays' because that and Tuesdays' are my only days odd. FYI I am a R.N. at Charleston Memorial. Like I said before not everyone does drugs or drinks. If this place is so bas, then keep you butt in PA.
I know what a Kawasaki mule is I was thinking pack mule based on where you live. I have a RZR that I don't use much (I usually ride my 450R)not that it matters. You must live in a fairy tale if you think your town doesn't have a lot of problems. Maybe a form of Denial?
I don't care where you work,what your schedule or that you misspell words.Do you think telling me to stay in PA will stop me from riding H&M trails?

I think your comments are childish and no one else should respond to your comments.

Obviously you are not capable to have an adult conversation, whether in person or on a public forum (if you can call topix a public forum).

So I hope no one else responds to this person, that is what he/she wants.

People like you are the reason we don't care for out of towners invading us. Just because you are a out of towner you think you are better than us and we are supposed to bow down and kiss you a** and take your cr*p. Sorry you are in for a ruse awakening. You get treated the way you treat us.

What is a ruse? Moron
I would hope I'm better then jobless druggies who have to steal to get by. My opinion has been generated by two trips to Logan in the past. Plus I can read what other posters are saying about each other. Do you not read the other forums on topix?it is your own townsfolk that give all of you a bad name. When someone from out of town days it you get offended. Take care of your problems from within and you won't have negative feedback.

Correction it should have been rude instead of ruse. I seen the mistake after I had posted but just wanted to see if anyone had anything to say about my spelling. And I am not a jobless druggie. I have worked for the past 40 years. I may not have much but what I do have I worked and payed for. And I have never used drugs. I have no fight with you. I could care less one way or the other if you come in to ride the trails. That is your choice. Just treat others as you would like them to treat you.You may be one of the decent riders but there are some who are not. Just like the locals and people on topix a few bad ones gives everybody a bad name. As the old saying goes one bad apple doesn't spoil the whole barrel. And if you do decide to come back and visit I hope you have a plesant trip.

That's a positive change of tune. Thank you for your kindness! I am not a bad guy I simply call it how I see it. I might be wrong but I believe you have a new mayor? Maybe he will clean your town up. It is a really good trail system I wouldn't drive 9 hrs to ride it if it wasn't. You cannot deny the fact that their is seriouse problems there. It's ashame the good people have to suffer a bad rap because of it. I apologize for categorizing you with the druggies.

Why is the H & C Trail system expanding into the Beckley and Charleston areas?

Wasn't the orginial plan to have the H & C Trails in the southern coal counties, Logan, Boone, Wyoming, Mingo, McDowell to help the economies with tourism in these counties? To create jobs and bring revenue to these "poor" counties?

Why expand to Kanawha and Raleigh counties? That could cause less business in the southern counties.

I think this is defeating the purpose of the orginal concept of the Hatfield and McCoy Trail Systems. Who makes these decisions? Who is on the board of the H&C Trail system?
