I walk here with my dog every week. Today, we were tangled when we got out of the car, so I let him off the leash. He started to go to the bathroom, so I let him go before I put his leash back on. Less than one minute with his leash off and I was being written a ticket by a park ranger (literally while picking up my dog’s droppings). I understand the “no dogs off leash” policy well. This seemed a bit extreme. *Great walk here, just giving dog owners a heads up! Very strict, borderline absurd, policy regulation.*

Beautiful views of the city and water, including a restored marshland where we spotted a pair if osprey hunting. A bit hot in the sun, but would make a gorgeous evening walk.

A good roundabout around a historical site, the highlight is a great Greek statue in honor of Francis Scott Key.

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...

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.
