Appalachian Mural Trail







    The Blue Ridge Parkway stretches 469 miles from Afton, Virginia south to Cherokee, North Carolina. Along the route every mile is marked by a Milepost guide, starting at 0 at the northernmost post and increasing as you travel south through the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Our vision is to follow the Blue Ridge Parkway and find already existing historical murals and also help communities create outdoor Appalachian historical murals within an easy driving distance from the Parkway. These murals will shine a light on the rich heritage of our mountains using talented local artists to complete each mural. We believe this will enhance the visitor's experience to the area through educating them about our rich heritage through art, while sharing the creativity of the mountains.

    Our Appalachian Mural Maps has Parkway Milepost directions to each dedicated mural and below you will find the list of milepost exits to begin your Mural Trail art experiences.
