Unfortunately this trail is closed on the Fort Sheridan side. We decide to walk around the historically side of Fort Sheridan. We parked on the street. walked along some of the paths, read the historical markers, walked across the grass. When we returned to our car we just got there in time to talk to the police officer whom informed us there is no street parking with a permit. There are a few signs that say that but they are widely spaced out. The officer was gracious and allowed us to pass. When I asked him is there a place for the public to park he didn't give me a conclusive answer.
