The Maine Island Trail Association

Event is   6:30-7:30pm,    please connect to Zoom 10 minutes early.

Doug Welch, executive director of the Maine Island Trail Association, will explain the organization while showing photographs of MITA events and locations. This is a 40 minute presentation with Q&A at the end and a comment section from BWSC members who annually sail the Maine coast.

The Maine Island Trail is a 375-mile water trail for boaters extending the length of the Maine coast. A recreational water trail, it connects over 240 wild islands and mainland sites open for day use or overnight camping. Site owners allow access to their properties trusting that MITA members and other users will be responsible stewards during their visits.  There is no official route along the Trail, and most users choose to explore it gradually over time.  Occasionally some adventurous folks do paddle, sail, motor, or row the entire length of the coast!

The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the wild islands of coastal Maine. Through 30+ years of community-building, stewardship, and education, the organization has fostered the sustainable use of the Maine Island Trail, a 375-mile water trail for boaters extending from the New Hampshire border to Canada. The Trail features over 240 wild islands and mainland sites open for day use or overnight camping. There is no official route along the Trail, and most users choose to explore it gradually over time. Boaters receive information about the Trail through the Maine Island Trail Guidebook and mobile app, published annually by MITA. To learn more, visit mita.org.
