The Riverwalk is an excellent paved trail along the southern bank of the Black Warrior River near downtown Tuscaloosa. The path is divided by a painted line making a distinct two way road for walkers and bikers.
There are a variety of park areas that are all dog friendly sprinkled along the trail. The pathway has plenty of benches, gazebos & hammock-friendly trees for quick breaks and picnics. The trail also provides a playground near the Public Library and a splash pad at the Bama Bell dock for the kids. The trail is well lighted with street lamps lining the trail.
Though expanding, the present entire length is approximately 4.5 miles, starting at Capitol Park on the western end and ending at a gazebo on the East side of Manderson Landing. It is 4.2 miles if you start at the Amphitheater loop, where you can use the ample parking that venue offers.
