Fort McHenry Trail

Fort McHenry Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Feel the stirrings of patriotism as you circle the most prominent symbol of the indomitable will of the fledgling United States. Walk along the seawall of the harbor where Francis Scott Key wrote our national anthem.

From where you can see the water taxi stand, about 150 feet to the left, head right until you reach the seawall, and then keep it on your left. You’ll see many signs telling you not to walk on the seawall itself; people have fallen in here, and as you’ll notice, getting back out of the water is no easy task. The water is pretty choppy and slams against the big rocks several feet below the wall."
