From Point State Park travel appx. 7 blocks on Blvd. of The Allied. Turn right onto Grant St. Turn left onto 3 Rivers Heritage/Allegheny Passage Trail at the foot of the hill. From there it is clearly marked.

It's a bit confusing when you turn onto Grant. There are actually 2 streets side by side. You want the 2nd or left of the 2. Just pay attention and you should be able to figure it out. We went the wrong way first time.
