A well-maintained trail that encircles the Fort McHenry National Monument. We took a water taxi to the monument, and it was a lot of fun!

Nice pleasant walk along the waterfront. You really do need to go inside the fort though...

We started the morning by having breakfast at the Iron Rooster in the McHenry Row then drove into the fort. We had planned to hike the entire outer loop but it was extremely windy out. We walked through all the buildings within the fort complex and the history was fascinating. We did do some walking along the waterfront and got to see geese. We are locals of the Baltimore area and I grew up in the North Point, Fort Howard area. British General Ross and his troops camped out on our farm during the war of 1812.

Love this trail as it is one of many historic trails and buildings in Baltimore, it’s a very nice trail to go on if you don’t want to pay to enter the fort.

family friendly, easy walking, paved trail with lots of people jogging and walking around, lots of photography opportunity,
if you want to go into the fort-DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG- it is a no no. however if you only want to walk on the trail your dog is welcome.
