Course

The river begins at Fallduck Lakes in Terry Township. It flows southeast, passes under Ontario Highway 66, and reaches Long Lake. It exits the lake heading east, passes over one of two dams and under Ontario Highway 573 at the community of Charlton (in the municipality of Charlton and Dack), then heads under Ontario Highway 560. The river passes over a series of waterfalls and rapids (Sunday Creek Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Hell's Gate, High Falls, and Nuisance Rapids), turns north, flows under Ontario Highway 11 and the Ontario Northland Railway mainline at the town of Englehart, then reaches its mouth at the Blanche River at Marter Township. The Blanche River flows via the Ottawa River to the Saint Lawrence River.
