The trail consists of 16 illustrated signs that take participants through Beaux-Arts and Neoclassical buildings. The first sign is located in the 700 block of Pennsylvania Avenue and tour Pennsylvania Avenue west to Freedom Plaza, turns south, and continues east along Constitution Avenue to the Federal Trade Commission.
