Do you have a bit of cabin fever? Missing the challenge of completing a long-distance hike without the added complications of a pandemic?

Well, the Maine Chapter of the International Appalachian Trail has a deal for you! Between now and October 1st, 2020, you’re invited to join us on a 138-mile virtual hike of the Maine IAT. All you need to do is walk in your neighborhood (or, if you prefer, hike a section of an actual trail), keep track of your mileage and report it on the form below. In return, we’ll keep track of where you are on the trail and display the results weekly.

Ready to start? Register below. All hikers will receive an official IAT trail blaze sticker, bookmark and pin. Those who complete the entire 138.2 miles virtual hike will receive an IAT baseball cap. And, if you aren’t already a Member of the Maine IAT, we’ll sign you up for a free membership if you complete the hike.

Remember, the Virtual Hiking Season ends on October 1st, so start getting those miles in now!

Be sure to view the galleries below to get a preview of the hike
