Maine’s iconic rocky coastline and its wonderous islands have received some considerable acclaim from a popular site.
The Maine Island Trail, a water route that travels from the boarder of New Hampshire all the way to Canada, has been named one of the most under-the-radar paddling trips in the United States. The accolades were given to the iconic aquatic trail by the outdoor enthusiast site oars.com. They put together a list of nine of the most under-the-radar paddle trips in the continental United States.
The organization benefits from private and corporate giving. One unique relationship is with Rising Tide Brewing Company. The brewer makes a beer called Maine Island Trail Ale, or MITA for short. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of MITA goes to the Maine Island Trail Association.
