The Mulberry Fork is a tributary of the Black Warrior River, approximately 100 miles long, in northern Alabama. The Mulberry Fork is one of three forks, along with the Locust and the Sipsey forks, that join to form the Black Warrior. It drains part of the southernmost end of the Appalachian Mountains north and west of Birmingham, in the drainage basin of the Mobile River.

The Mulberry Fork rises in northeastern Cullman County, south of Arab. It flows in tight meanders along a ridge of the foothills, forming the boundary between Cullman and Blount counties. It receives the Sipsey Fork from the northwest approximately 15 miles east of Jasper. In southern Walker County it enters Bankhead Lake reservoir, forming the northernmost arm of the lake, approximately 10 miles long. The confluence with the Locust Fork is now submerged within Bankhead Lake, approximately 25 miles west of Birmingham.
