The Gull River flows out of Gull Lake in Haliburton, travels south and feeds into the north end of Shadow Lake. The Gull River drainage basin is an important reservoir for the Trent–Severn Waterway. Most of the lake front property on the lower sections of the Gull River system consists of deep narrow lots and Gull Lake/Gull River is a popular destination for lake trout fishing.
An artificial whitewater course was constructed through Minden and has earned the river a reputation amongst enthusiasts and kayakers.
