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.
