PINCKNEY, Mich. (AP) -- Boy Scouts are hosting commemorative hikes along the Potawatomi Trail this weekend to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The trail is on the grounds of Pinckney State Recreation Area in Livingston and Washtenaw counties.

The public is invited to join in a re-creation of the original 8-mile Charter Day Hike on Saturday and Sunday. Cost is $5 per person.

Registration takes place from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Hikes depart from Camp Munhacke throughout the day. Participants will receive a 50th Anniversary Day Hiker patch.

Scouts designed and created the trail in 1964, which has grown from 12 to 17 miles. It's on land that for centuries was a hunting and fishing area for Native American tribes.

Runner's World magazine rates it one of the nation's top 25 trails.
