MITA’s annual Trail Guide is your complete resource for exploration of the Maine Island Trail, featuring comprehensive descriptions and usage guidelines for over 200 destinations. The Guide isn’t for sale – rather, members receive it every spring and it’s valid only for that year’s boating season.
You can’t buy the Guide in your local bookstore because we want to encourage conservationists and users of Maine’s coast to support MITA through annual membership. Your dues fund stewardship, education, and management to preserve these places for all to enjoy. Because sites are added to and removed from the Trail every year, and usage guidelines may change, it’s important to have a current copy of the Guidebook with you when you travel the Trail.
Join MITA to receive your Guidebook and start planning your Trail adventures!
