This river was called a "blind river" because the river's mouth is not easily seen from the lake. Its native (Ojibway) name is "biniwaabikong", which means "at the fallen rock" due to the smooth, sloping rock face along the river.
The river flows south from Pathfinder Lake through a group of other lakes and empties into the North Channel of Lake Huron at the central community of Blind River.
