CourseEdit

The Kaltenmühlbach springs at 815 m (2,674 ft) above sea level from the so-called Three Wells (Drei Brunnen) at the foot of Entenbühl (901 m (2,956 ft)) near the border of the Silberhütte. After only a few hundred meters, it becomes a little stream in the hamlet Altglashütte. After 3 km (1.9 mi) it flows into a pond.

From the bifurcation of left flowing Silberbach, it divides again after a few kilometers, and some of the water flows back to the Kaltenmühlbach. The Silberbach flows directly into the Waldnaab.

After the Kaltenmühlbach has regenerated after its turn, it flows through a deep valley, where it grows by numerous creeks into a small river. After a few farms, it flows under the road 2172 (Plößberg - Bärnau), and then helps the fledgling Waldnaab flow.
