The river flows begins at an unnamed lake in geographic Dudley Township in the municipality of Dysart et al, just southwest of the southern tip of Algonquin Provincial Park. It flows south, passes under Ontario Highway 118, then turns southwest, and passes over the High Falls. It continues southwest, passes into the municipality of Minden Hills, heads past the community of Irondale, and reaches its mouth at the Burnt River, northeast of the community of Kinmount. The Burnt River flows via the Kawartha Lakes, the Otonabee River and the Trent River to Lake Ontario.

From east of the community of Gooderham to the river mouth, the river is paralleled by Haliburton County Road 503.
