Urban Trail Walking Tour

The Asheville Urban Trail, a walking tour of downtown Asheville, highlights the unique architecture, people, and historic events of the city. The Urban Trail is divided into five distinct eras, each of which has a symbol. These symbols are carved into pink granite blocks placed in the sidewalk along the way for you to follow. All street crosswalks for the trail are marked. Enjoyed in its entirety, the walking tour requires approximately two hours to complete.

For detailed information on the trail stations, including an audio tour, printable or interactive map, and a video outlining the history of the trail itself, visit our partners at Explore Asheville  here.
