Asheville Urban Trail

Take a self-guided walking tour along downtown Asheville’s Urban Trail, and you’ll learn all kinds of interesting tidbits about this eclectic mountain town.

The Urban Trail is Asheville’s “museum without walls” and consists of 30 different bronze sculptures around downtown, shedding light on the city’s unique history. The “Energy Loop”; the Deco Gecko in Pritchard Park; the murals in the City Hall chambers; the bronze life-size sculpture of Martin Luther King, Jr. at MLK Park; the diverse sculptures and plaques along the Urban Trail are all part of Asheville’s public art collection.

The 1.7 mile walk begins and ends at Pack Place; maps are available at the Asheville Visitor Center and Pack Place. The tour will take approximately 2 hours, unless you decide to shop or eat along the way!

Asheville’s Urban Trail is a great, free thing to do during the summer when the weather is warm, and the people watching is at its prime! For more details, visit or call 828.259.5815.
