Check Status of Trails and Preserves
Preserve improvements, construction projects and weather-related events sometimes result in temporary detours or closures of trails, preserves or facilities to ensure public safety.
Before heading out, check the Trail Tunnel Status Map for current status (open/closed) of trail underpasses along the Des Plaines River Trail, the Millennium Trail, and other trail tunnel locations.
Emergency alerts, closure notices, construction alerts, controlled burn locations and preserve planning projects are also provided on our Construction, Closures, Controlled Burns web page and updated during normal business hours, 8:30 am–5 pm, Monday–Friday, excluding holidays. Project updates are sometimes also provided on Facebook and Twitter.
Before heading out to Independence Grove in Libertyville, check for updates on concerts, the beach, and marina. You can also call the Independence Grove hotline at 847-968-3497 or follow us on Twitter for updates.
We are working on projects and plans that will help create new trails and improve public access and natural resource restoration at preserves throughout Lake County. Learn about two proposed Concept Plans for Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve here.
