Sky Trails: In Review + Ticket Giveaway

Last week my family got the chance to check out the new Sky Trails adventure ropes course at Pittsburgh Mills. It is quite the experience and I love seeing new venues that are active for kids! My kids are 6, 4, 3 & 2 and although we had meant to only bring our 2 oldest, our babysitter fell through and so we had all four. So we had our hands a little fuller than we anticipated, but it worked out. Our youngest 3 started on the Sky Tykes ropes course that is specifically for kids under 48" tall, geared towards children ages 2-7. It's a fun experience for them and allows them to work on their balance and their bravery. :)  The platforms are less than 3’ off the ground and they ask a chaperone to assist. 



The Sky Trail® adventure ropes course stands 32' tall with 2 levels of 30 elements. The elements are horizontally strung ropes and bridge activities like zig-zag beams, criss-cross angled rope ladders and cargo nets secured between steel poles


 All ages and abilities can experience the Sky Trail® attraction. Participants are able to choose their path through the rope elements while going at their own pace with the ability to pass other participants at each platform. This course requires a 48" minimum height to participate alone however adventurers 42” or higher can participate with an adult.


My 6yo was way less scared than I thought he would be!


And then there is the zip line! 


My 4yo wasn't tall enough to go by herself on the upper level, but I could go along with her. She was timid at first. but did great. Once she had her first zip line ride, she was definitely hooked!


  • It is $7 for the smaller Sky Tykes and $14 for the Sky Trails & Zip Line.
