The river rises near Gilpin Lodge in the vicinity of Bowness-on-Windermere and flows in a general south-by-south-easterly direction through Gilpinpark Plantation.
From there, the river continues moving south to Sampool, where it meets the River Kent.
The name of the river is in honour of the Gilpin family.
