A collabo between the Asheville Downtown Association Foundation, Explore Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the South Slope Neighborhood Association, the self-guided, walkable trail is situated on ~2 miles in + around the South Slope. Pro tip: Not in the mood to walk? Rent an electric bike from The Flying Bike (at 225 Coxe Ave.), also located along the trail.

Featuring 17 works from local artists including Lara Nguyen, Ian Wilkinson, Ishmael, and Brushcan Custom Murals, Asheville’s newest street art not only boosts the city’s artistic cred + clout, it offers more stunning sights to take in while strolling about South Slope. That’s a win-win, if you ask us.
