The Maine Chapter of the International Appalachian Trail (IAT) was incorporated in 1994 to promote the establishment of a long-distance hiking trail from the eastern boundary of Baxter State Park, where Mt Katahdin is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, to the northern end of the Appalachians in North America.
The long-term IAT goal is to locate sections of the trail on all the terranes of the original Appalachians. In addition to the Maine Chapter, the IAT has other North American chapters responsible for the trail in New Brunswick, Quebec (referred to as the SIA, Sentier International des Appalaches), Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Greenland. European IAT chapters have now been established in Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, and France.
