Black Warrior River - USA, Alabama

The Black Warrior River is part of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway and flows through western Alabama joining the Tombigbee River at Demopolis. It can be navigated about 180 miles (280km) upriver to the port of Birmingham. One of the hardest-working rivers in Alabama, the Black Warrior River is home to several dams and hydroelectric generators. Near the city of Tuscaloosa, the Black Warrior crosses the fall line, which is a geologic barrier representing the coast of an ancient sea. Once travelled by frontiersman Davy Crockett, the Black Warrior River flows through some of the most fertile farmland in America and is well-known for its covered bridges, birding, and archaeological sites.
