It flows east to Cruse Lake, then turns northeast and passes through Bobs Lake, takes in an unnamed left tributary arriving from Mountain Lake, and reaches Chathams Lake. The creek continues northeast, passes into Lanark Highlands township, takes in an unnamed left tributary arriving from Twin Lake, and heads east. It takes in a third unnamed left tributary arriving from McIntosh Lake, and reaches its mouth at the South Branch Clyde River at an elevation of 189 metres (620 ft), about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) southwest and upstream of the community of Clyde Forks.
