Ever since hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT) in Maine in 2006, Mike Zimmerman (aka “Old Moose”) has been interested in hiking the International Appalachian Trail (IAT) in Maine and Canada. Since then, he has hiked the AT as far south as Sherburne, Vermont and two-thirds of the Long Trail in Vermont.
Old Moose actually started the IAT in Maine on October 10, 2015, when he took the Katahdin Lake Trail in Baxter State Park to Katahdin Lake Wilderness Camps, then continued on the South Katahdin Lake Trail to the park boundary at the Katahdin Lake East (KLE) access point, the IAT southern terminus. He hiked on the IAT for a total of 0.3 miles to the old Gardner Road before turning around.
