Joshua Hommes WEIS - It is one thing to dream big dreams, but it is another to put feet to action. Levi Crabtree is an 8th grader from Cherokee County High School, an Eagle Scout with local troop 247, and also the young man behind the new mountain bike trail located at Cherokee Rock Village. Levi had a vision for the trail and began laying that vision out. “So I just needed an eagle scout project and I have been wanting to do a mountain bike trail in Cherokee County, so it kind of just popped up.” Levi said.
The trail is about 1 mile in length and will be available for all residents of Cherokee County, as well as visitors. Levi wanted to put together a project that was meaningful and when asked who his inspiration for this project was, he responded, “My dad helped me a lot, especially my family members. They motivated me to get it done and just hard work and dedication to it.”
Levi also expressed that he was a Type-1 Diabetic, stating, “If you think you can’t do it because you have something wrong with you, don’t think you can’t do it, because you can do anything you put your mind to.”
The Cherokee Rock Village and Boy Scout Troop 247 are cordially inviting everyone to the grand opening of Cherokee County’s very first public mountain biking trail. This event will be held on May 28th from 9am – 12pm. Opening ceremony will be at 10am and there will be free hot dogs served from the pavilion.
