From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Maine Island Trail is a 350-mile-long waterway along the coast of Maine that connects approximately 150 islands and mainland sites available for day visits or overnight camping. The trail is operated by the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA), a non-profit organization based in Portland, Maine with almost 4000 members. Through partnerships with the State of Maine, as well as land trusts, non-profit organizations, and generous private property owners, MITA ensures access to these sites for visitors in kayaks, sailboats, motorboats, and other watercraft. The annual MITA guidebook, distributed in the spring to MITA members, describes the location of each site on the trail.

The trail was established in 1988 and has since become the largest water trail in the United States. The trail begins in Cape Porpoise Harbor, near Kennebunkport, Maine and ends in Machias, Maine, with an additional collection of ten islands in the Passamaquoddy/New Brunswick region of Canada.
