Chairperson Hugh Skinner has been on the committee since its inception and was a
major part of decision making and provided physical labour at various stages of the
project. Crocus Trail would not remain a committee without the hours of dedication
that Hugh continues to provide.
Crocus Trail hired Mike Hayward as Project Manager as the first step to a successful
project. Mike took personal pride in the project and the trail is a tribute to his dedication
to the job. The committee was fortunate that the project partners were cooperative
and able to offer their expertise to the project to make the best decisions on
how to solve the current problems and avoid future issues. More refining of the trail
is required but at present the trail is ready for exploring.
A team of bicyclists eagerly headed
out after the opening ceremonies.
Their views of lakes, geese, and pelicans
and the fascination of finding animal
tracks on the trail have led others
to be anxious to see the beauty of the
trail through their own eyes.
Crocus Trail wishes to thank Trans Canada Trail as they were the major
funder for the project. Additional funds were provided by Louisiana
