Would You Zipline Down Mount Washington?

The proposed ride would begin on Duquesne Heights and finish in the North Shore


Fans of the Duquesne Incline could have another, more exciting way to get down from the city’s iconic mountaintop. 

A discussion will soon be underway about a proposed zip line on Mount Washington. The Pittsburgh Zipline Co. says its ride would begin at Duquesne Heights and end on the North Shore, a distance of roughly a half mile.

According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, the company will present its plans to the Mount Washington Community Development Corp. during a virtual meeting on July 22.

This is not the first time a proposal for a zip line down from Mount Washington has been proposed. Awesome Pittsburgh awarded a $1,000 grant in 2013 to study the idea.
