The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) is a group we are proud to be a part of. Founded in 1988, it is now the largest water trail association in North America and is a model for new trails across the country. MITA is a leader in balancing recreational access and conservation on the Maine coast. The water trail system is a 350-mile long waterway that consists of islands and mainland that are available for folks to visit. The waterway extends from Cape Porpoise Harbor to Machias Bay and includes several sites in coastal New Brunswick.
The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) encourages participation in programs such as Island Clean-ups and the Adopt-An-Island program as well as Leave No Trace. Through partnerships with the State of Maine, as well as land trusts and generous private property owners, MITA ensures access to visitors in kayaks, sailboats, motorboats and other watercraft.
