The river begins at Hawkins Lake and heads northeast to Bayly Lake. From Bayley Lake, one can make a short portage east to Bayly Bay on Gods Lake, source of the Gods River. The Wolf River then heads north to Fishing Eagle Lake, then turns west and reaches its mouth on the east side of Knee Lake. Knee Lake empties via the Hayes River to Hudson Bay. Knee Lake Airport and Knee Lake Water Aerodrome are 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) and 8.5 kilometres (5.3 mi) from the river mouth respectively on the opposite shore of Knee Lake
