The source of the drive is located south of the Zeulenroda-Triebes district of Pöllwitz , less than a kilometer away from the Weida spring. The stream flows north through the Pöllwitzer forest . From Pöllwitz the Weida-Mehltheuer railway follows the course of the drive. The river flows on through Zeulenroda and Triebes , past the Reichenfels castle ruins to the southeast of Schüptitz , where the Triebes joins the Weida after about 21 km opposite the Valentinsmühle.

In the 17th century the river was used for rafting . For this, the Pöllwitzer ponds were created as a water reservoir. In 1893, 1924 and 1954 the Triebes caused severe floods. The flood of August 25, 1924 destroyed four houses in Triebes.
