A ropes course in Pittsburgh? I didn’t even know we had one until last week.  I stepped out on a limb, literally and took my kids to Sky Trail at Pittsburgh Mills.  If you are afraid of heights, like I am, Sky Trail is the perfect place for you to overcome your fear while your kids have a ton of fun. Sitting atop the food court in the middle of Pittsburgh Mills Mall are horizontally strung cables and ropes that reminds me of an in-person game of Chutes & Ladders.

Sky Trails Pittsburgh

Before you get to cross the bridges and cables at Sky Trail you put on a full-body harness and are given the rules. Then, you’re off.  Each section has a unique obstacle course.  Once I overcame my fear of heights, it was easy to cross each bridge whether it was made of cables or wooden boards.


Plus visit Pittsburgh Mills Sky Trail’s  Facebook page and Instragram Page for chances to win tickets, tons of reviews about the attraction and information about their awesome staff. You can also enter Brown Mamas’ giveaway below!
