The river begins at Greenhill Lake in geographic Makawa Township and flows north, curving around the west side of the lake to eventually head southeast to Amik Lake. It continues south east then northeast through the north central part of geographic Amik Township, then enters geographic Nebotik Township at the southwest corner. The river continues northeast, then turns east and takes in the right tributary South Greenhill River. It continues east, enters geographic Conking Township, turns northeast, enters geographic Hayward Township, flows under the Canadian National Railway transcontinental railway main line between the railway points of Fire River to the west and Argolis to the east, a section of track travelled on by Via Rail transcontinental Canadian passenger trains, and reaches its mouth at the Missinaibi River. The Missinaibi River flows via the Moose River to James Bay.
