WW2 Jeep Test Site

A friend found out that there is an abandoned WW2 Jeep test site located @ Ft. Holabird in Dundalk, MD. Back in the day there were no trees and somewhere in the overgroth is a staircase to drive on too.

Is this open to the public? And if so, is it worth a drive up from DC? Thanks!

There are only 2 paths that are clear of debris. It is more of a nostalgia.
