It passes under the R400 and then turns northeast, flowing under Garr Bridge[2] It meets several tributaries and then its last section forms part of the Meath–Offaly border and passes under Sheep Bridge south of Castlejordan.[3] It meets the River Mongagh and then passes under Clongall Bridge[4] and later enters the Boyne.

The Yellow River is known as a brown trout fishery.[5]
