Logan to add more than three miles to existing local trails

<strong>LOGAN—</strong> Existing trails in the city of Logan total approximately 11.5 miles and Parks and Recreation Director Russ Akina said the trails in progress will add an additional 3.62 miles to the popular trail system.

Last week, Akina gave a report to the Logan City Council and was also a guest Monday on KVNU’s For the People show. He said it’s a lack of resources that slows the progress on most trail projects. The cost for the five trail projects now in progress totals around $1.2 million.

Akina said his department would like to see the trail segments that have been in the master plan for the last 10 years completed in five.

“We will be done with this Logan Canyon Gateway segment that goes from the mouth of the canyon up to the River Trail Trailhead that most people use when they want to go up the canyon along the river. That’s the segment that actually will be done by this summer.”

Other trails in progress include the Ray Hugie Hydro Park/Bonneville Shoreline Trail Link, Canyon Road Trail, 10th West Trail, and the Lundstrom Park Trail.
