This application provides selectable Google Maps markers for the Asheville Urban Trail, a walking tour of Asheville, NC with 30 stations that highlights the unique architecture, people, and history of the city. The Urban Trail is divided into five distinct eras, and each era has a symbol -- each era in this application is represented by a different color. The era symbols are carved into pink granite blocks placed in the sidewalk along the way. Followed in its entirety, the Urban Trail walking tour takes approximately two hours to complete.
The map in this application identifies each of the 30 stations by its number. All 30 stations on the trail include a piece of art and/or a bronze plaque that describe(s) the station. Select a marker to see the name of the corresponding station on the Urban Trail along with an associated description from the Urban Trail brochure.
