Located in Federal Hill next to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, this historical hike walks in the steps of our brave countrymen around the star-shaped Fort McHenry, where Francis Scott Key wrote the national anthem. The American flag waves above as you hike the Seawall Trail, a short path that circles an eighteenth-century star-shaped fort. Birthplace of the national anthem, Fort McHenry is bounded by a perimeter trail that follows along the seawall of Baltimore’s harbor, affording expansive views of the city’s waterfront and the city skyline and industrial areas.
