It originates in Trout Lake, at an elevation of 490 meters (1,610 ft). It flows north and then east, through occasional rapids, receiving the waters from several creeks and lakes. The course becomes meandered before it is crossed by the Mackenzie Highway, where the river turns sharply west, then north. It continues through a 60 meters (200 ft) deep canyon, then empties into the Mackenzie River, 60 kilometers (37 mi) downstream from Jean Marie River and 95 kilometers (59 mi) upstream from Mills Lake, at an elevation of 145 meters (476 ft).
