The newly mapped walking trails are proving to be more popular than ever before according to park manager Bruce Collinsworth. In addition to people walking for their health or scenery events have been taking place on the walking trails.
This weekend the National Trails Day walking event will be held at Chief Logan State Park's trails on June 6.
On Sunday, June 14, the Holden 22 Reunion will be returning to Chief Logan State Park. "Most people start arriving around 10:30 a.m. but lunch will be starting at noon," said Jill Stone. "This is the 47th Holden 22 reunion since the organization began. The participants involved are motivated to make it to number 50."
Stone said the reunion was held to remember the 22 Holden Mine camp, which was one of the most vibrant communities in Logan County until tragedies and change took its toll. The Holden 22 Reunion is held every second Sunday in June. For more information about the event, contact Connie M. Preece at 304-946-4264 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stone said the Chief Logan State Park pool is open and active and that the regular Splash Pool parties are continuing.
"The next big pool party will be Tuesday, June 9 from 7-9 p.m.," Stone said. Admission is $5 but food and drinks are included in that. We like to joke that the food is $2.50, the entertainment is $2.50 but the fun is priceless. Another Splash Pool party will be held on June 23. The last one will be on July 7."
Pickin' in the Park has returned courtesy of a newly revamped structure for the traditional mountain music event. Pickin' in the Park presents bluegrass music shows every Thursday and Saturday at 6 p.m.
