The river sources in Strážov Highlands in southwest direction from the community of Čičmany. At first, it flows in northeast direction, and from Fačkov continues to the north up to its mouth into Váh-river, not far from the town of Žilina. River basin makes 360 km², the length of navigable section is 32,6 kms.

In its upper section, this small river with flat stony river bed  and big slope, flows throughout nice countryside in deep valley, which is formed with Malá Fatra Mountains from right and Strážov Highlands from left side. Late, the valley is becoming wider, and when it sinks, the stream is constantly very quick.

Along whole flow, there are nine weirs, most of them are passable, however, some are damaged. Within descent of these weirs, there is to be recommended to investigate it in advance.

In its lower part, the river is regulated and has several perpendicular stages.
