The Riverbluff Walkway offers scenic views of the Mississippi River as it traverses the edge of downtown Memphis. The trail is built on top of the Chickasaw Bluff, which has been put to good use by the city—in addition to the Riverbluff Walkway, beautiful homes, new parks and an active rail line rest on the bluff.
The trail is immediately adjacent to the rail corridor, which is used by the MATA Trolley’s Riverfront Loop, along its northern stretch. The rail-with-trail passes next to two stations on the line, allowing for easy access by foot or bike to the trolley. The loop carries passengers to downtown Memphis.
Towards the southern end of the trail, the trail runs through the gated South Bluffs community, before turning to cross a pedestrian bridge over Riverside Drive. In Ashburn-Coppock Park, the Riverbluff Walkway meets the Mississippi Riverwalk, which extends north and south along the river below the bluff.
Parking for the Riverbluff Walkway is available in the large lot for Tom Lee Park on Riverside Drive. A long staircase across the road from the park leads up the bluff to the trail. Cyclists can take the Mississippi Riverwalk south from the park to reach the Riverbluff Walkway’s bridge over Riverside Drive.
