This river emerges from near Lake Lea and is a meandering slow stream through the Vale of Belvoir. It is crossed by the C132 (Belvoir Rd). It eventually flows into Mackintosh Creek that enters the top end of Lake Mackintosh. Has a reputation as a good stream fishery with rainbow and brown trout encountered.
