The Tumblestone is a river in the westerlands and the riverlands. After beginning in the western hills, it flows east into the Red Fork of the Trident.[1] Riverrun sits at the spot where the Tumblestone meets the Trident.[2] A swift river,[3] the Tumblestone is much deeper than the Red Fork. The nearest ford is miles upriver from Riverrun.[4]
