Nice, easy paved trail with a few hills. Follows the Catawba River & has access to the river for kayakers & floaters.

This is a very nice trail for everyone but it isnt a loop. it is mostly paved along the river. There are access points at both ends of the trail.
About a mile in is access to unpaived mountain bike trails I've never been on.
As a Pokemon Go fan I appreciate the fact that there are Pokestops at the beginning and one about a mile in as well as a gym about 3/4 mile in and tons of critters as I call them

For the most part, it’s an easy trail with a few steep incline hills

Nice urban trail. It's paved so should have worn running shoes instead of our hiking boots

Really nice part of Rock Hill

Great place to go for a day trip
So many things to do. Next time I'll bring a blanket and lie down with my family and listen to the rushing water down stream. Very relaxing.

Riverwalk is a wonderful community with cycling, mountain bike trail system, BMX track, kayak dock, and beautiful 3 mile paved trail along the river. Definite must visit!

Nice trail, enjoyed the view but around mile 3 there was construction on the path I didn't anticipate and had to, sadly turn around

was very mellow for MTB riding. the trails were decent in a way. i could tell, the park did either not have the money and the resources to make a great MTB trail or they did not know how. either way, it was a nice ride. beautiful views. have to watch out for other people, it can get crowded at times.

Wide paved trail with nice scenery along the Catawba river. Can get busy on the weekend with casual walkers, families with young kids, people walking their dogs, etc. I don't mind this but, if you do, the crowds thin out after around the .75 mile mark. Nice place to walk if you like being near the water and don't want too much seclusion. park attendants drive by occasionally to check things out. It's an easy trail but there are some hills along the way. Lots of parking space.

Great place to bring dogs, especially in summer if they like to wade and play in the river. Trails are paved. Beautiful views!

It is pretty good. Heavily trafficked in places at times. Not good if you want to think. Too many people. Safer now that some of the very close brush has been done away with.

Nice paved trail. Some good hills and length. Very good for whatever type of activity you will use it for. Also saw 4 deer foraging along trail.

We kept to the paved trail with our dog - this was well-maintained and full of runners, walkers, and cyclists. We had no problems finding parking. The paved trail was very pleasant for a walk with plenty of unpaved trail options branching off for a more challenging hike/run/ride. Consistently well-marked at each quarter mile, with curve and hill signs as well, I would definitely recommend the Riverwalk, especially for families!

Great trail to walk if you love a suburb setting. A few hills to get your cardio going and great views of the Catawba River with the trail ending at an old railroad bridge crossing the river.

Trail is ok, difficult to find a parking place. Unless this changes, I won't be back.

Great! I hiked through the woods on the 2nd most difficult trail and saw 3 deer! For anyone looking for a little more challenging walk or hike than the paved trail, they have some nice trails through the woods!

Pretty busy place on a late Sat morning. Watching the misc boaters, small wildlife & the plethora of dog walkers made the partly shaded walk on the paved path, that much more enjoyable.

It looks so much better now that they have cleared out a better view of the river. I love that you can take the bike trails off of the paved path to get a more nature-like feel.

Once off the pavement, the actual mountain bike trail is not very well maintained. With all the low-canopy saplings, high-grass and weeds, and narrow track, it's nearly impossible to break 10mph anywhere on the dirt.

Blue and Black Diamond take great advantage of the terrain, giving smooth transitions, but visibility is limiting. Bring your own machete and widen the trail by 2ft to see where you're going.

Very well maintained. Completely paved, more of a track than trail. Clear mile markers (and markers for 911 location too). Enough of an incline to give us "just starting to exercise couch potatoes" a work out. Beautiful scenery along the river, lots of nature - one family on the trail said they had seen a beaver, we saw heron, other birds and lots of turtles. Plenty of shade and benches if you want to just sit an take in nature for a few minutes. Treasure to have here in town.

This is a great walking trail. I love that it is paved and has .25 mile markers. There are just enough hills to give a little bit of a challenge. Brady, my 1 year old Chesador (a cross between a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and a Labrador Retriever) loved the walk and the river access (even though he wouldn't go for a swim). Trees provide some shade on the path. Highly recommend!
