At 7.30 on Thursday evening local hiking enthusiasts, Jerry Brisbane and Clement Rabess arrived at Fort Shirley, Cabrits National Park, ending their six day hike across Dominica and thus becoming the first Dominicans to complete the whole of the 115 mile Waitukubuli National Trail (WNT) from one end to the other.
They were greeted by their wives, staff of the WNT, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Mr. Samuel Carrette, and other supporters.
During a short ceremony Mr. Carrette presented the hikers with wood carvings by craftsman Francis Richards depicting the logo of the WNT and a map of Dominica as a trophy of their achievement.
The Director of the WNT Project Mr. Eddie Henry was the first to congratulate the two man team as they walked in from the darkness of the forest on the Cabrits to complete segment 14, the last segment of the trail. cont./
