BEDFORD, Ind. (AP) — Visitors to the Hoosier National Forest can take a hike or watch a Dutch oven cook at a celebration scheduled later this month in southern Indiana.

The Wonders of Wilderness Celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. The event will be held Sept. 27 in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness.

Visitors can see the Hoosier National Forest's mules and learn about the primitive tools used to maintain trails in the wilderness area. People can also try to cut a log with a crosscut saw.

The event also includes a search and rescue discussion and tips on how to remain safe when hiking in the forest.

Guided hikes on the rugged, six-mile Sycamore Loop Trail will start at 3 p.m.
