The Maine section of the IAT/SIA is 138.4 miles (223kms) long. Heading north from the trail head parking near mile 12 on the Katahdin Loop Road, the route passes through boreal forests and follows trails, old logging roads, an abandoned railroad bed, and rural public roads to the potato fields of Aroostook County. Beyond Fort Fairfield, the trail enters New Brunswick.
