Trail & Maps

The Maine section of the IAT/SIA is 138.4 miles (223kms.) long. The route passes through boreal forests, follows trails, old logging roads, rural public roads, an abandoned railroad bed, to the potato fields of Aroostook County and the cleared strip of land along the boundary between the United States and Canada. Beyond Fort Fairfield, the trail enters the province of New Brunswick.


Reservations for camping/lodging are required in Baxter State Park and in the parks of Canada for camping/lodging.
