Trail Crew Volunteers

The Chapter is always looking for helping hands to maintain and improve the trail.


Two and three day work sessions are usually scheduled from late May to Late June, and often there will be another from September to November.


Most of the work takes place in wilderness areas east of Baxter State Park, often in view of Mt. Katahdin.  There are other single day work sessions along the trail from Houlton to Fort Fairfield.


If interested in joining a work crew, please contact Cheryl St. Peter for more information.

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.
