NOTE: In order to maximize your wildflower viewing experience, I HIGHLY encourage you to make the extra climb to Upper McCord Creek Falls. The trail is well-graded, and there are many species which can only be seen blooming on the cliffs at the higher portion of the trail.
If you are approaching from the east, take Exit 37 (Warrendale). Drive west on Warrendale Road for 0.25 mile to a stop sign. Turn left, pass under the freeway and turn left again onto Frontage Road. Drive 0.25 east to the trailhead parking lot.
CAVEAT: Do not leave valuables in your car!
