Hike the Fort McHenry Trail Reviews

The walk is short, but pleasant. The fort itself and visitors center are well worth the visit. There is a really pretty picnic area to the right just as you pass through the gate with tables and trash cans that is more sheltered from the wind than most of the park.

I wouldn't call this much of a "trail" but it's a nice path through this very historic place. It offers some of the best views of the harbor and is not to be missed if you're in the city.
