Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine: Seawall Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."
