There are indeed two small creeks named Little River in the Greenbrier River watershed. Both are
marginally runnable and both have many strainers. The one in the description is a tributary of the
West Fork Greenbrier deep in the National Forest along FS road 17. The other is a tributary of the
East Fork Greenbrier River running along US Route 250 near Buffalo Lake.

If you are looking for this creek with the map or given coordinates, you will be at the WRONG
Little River.

[April 2011] Little River was not suitable for paddling... sweepers everywhere! We hiked the
section from the first low water bridge down about two miles - every hundred yards or less were
trees down bank to bank. It's a beautiful area, but should be hiked, not paddled. See photos...
