It drains part of the Northern Oregon Coast Range northwest of Portlandmarker, originating on the east side of the mountains and flowing in a loop around the north end of the range near the mouth Columbia River. Its watershed of includes an important timber-producing region of Oregon that was the site of the Tillamook Burn. In its upper reaches it flows through long narrow valley of small mountain communities but is unpopulated along most of its lower reaches inland from the coast.

It rises in the northeast corner of Tillamook Countymarker, in the Tillamook State Forestmarker. It initially flows northeast, across the northwest corner of Washington Countymarker and into western Columbia Countymarker, past Vernoniamarker and Pittsburg. At Pittsburg, it looks to the northwest and west into Clatsop Countymarker, then flows southwest back into northern Tillamook County. It enters Nehalem Baymarker on the Pacific in an estuary at Nehalemmarker, about west-northwest of Portland. Near its mouth on the Pacific, the river passes under U.S. Route 101.

It receives the Salmonberry Rivermarker from the east in northern Tillamook County. It receives the North Fork Nehalem River from the north about northwest of Nehalem, just before entering Nehalem Bay.
