MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The bicycle and pedestrian trails that run through Market Common in Myrtle Beach now have informational signage thanks to an Eagle Scout.

City officials say Eagle Scout Nick Golden is a Boy Scout member with Troop 801 and took on developing signs for the paths as his Eagle Scout project.

Golden designed 10 signs and three kiosks for unmarked trails in the Market Common district, the city confirms.  Golden led several troop members during the installation of the signs. The 15-year-old Scholars Academy student raised $1,000 to complete the work.

The markers installed throughout the Market Common district designate the Farrow, Meyers, Coventry, Maverick and Woodland Trails. The city says the new signs allow riders and walkers to use the signs to track their journey on the trails and identify their location in case of an emergency.  The kiosks also provide additional information about the trails and the area.
