It begins in the Kaltag Mountains and flows 90 miles in a southwesterly direction to Norton Sound, just south of the village of Unalakleet. It is a clear, quiet, braided river and through the Nulato Hills, a region forested in spruce and willow. From the Nulato Hills, the river meanders through muskeg spruce in the low coastal region before reaching the village. The water consists of fast-moving riffles and pools and slow meandering sections.
