Hiking in Maine: A hiker’s guide to some great island adventures along Maine’s coast

The geographic expanse of Maine’s coastline ranges some 230 miles from Kittery to Lubec, as the crow flies, but an incredible 3,500 miles when every nook and cranny and 2,400 islands are accounted for along the Gulf of Maine between New Hampshire and New Brunswick, Canada.
