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.

- To find a specific marker on the map, use the "Find" option in the menu.
- For a selected marker, press the "Share" button to share that marker's details with friends.
- For text-to-speech audio for each marker, turn "Auto-play speech" on in the Settings menu.

Asheville, NC has long appealed to visitors and residents with its stunning mountain setting, popular attractions like the Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway, its arts and crafts heritage, and its unique architecture and history. Experience the architectural attractions and learn more about Asheville's history by following the Urban Trail. As taking the walking tour involves crossing busy streets in downtown Asheville, always exercise due caution while using this application. Note that during times of construction, some stations may be temporarily moved or even removed altogether, so no guarantee of any station's location or existence is provided.

The Asheville Urban Trail is maintained by the City of Asheville. This application is provided for free by Wolf Mountain Apps as a courtesy to the residents and tourists of Asheville based on information available in the public domain, and it has not been commissioned by the City.

    Note: IRL stop 25 (Ellington's Dream) is where the app shows stop 26 (time capsule) and IRL stop 26 is at the corner of College and S Spruce St. Other than that, the app is a great way to follow the Asheville Urban Trail. It even gives some interesting ad
