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.

The Buckeye gauge is located 59 miles downstream of the put-in on the mainstem of the Greenbrier River. This means that this gauge can only be used as an indicator.
Permits are not required for this reach.

Get your groove on baby! This year Gauley Fest is a 60’s themed event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. To memorialize that historic event we are flashing back to another era for a 60’s throwdown. Started in 1983 to celebrate the derailment of a hydro-electric project that would have disrupted the flows on the Gauley River, Gauley Fest has grown to become the largest paddling festival in the world.
American Whitewater received the following open letter to boaters from the rangers and staff of the Gauley River National Recreation Area. This letter will keep you up to date on important management actions of the National Park Service on the Gauley River. Enjoy your paddling season on this classic whitewater river. As in past years, American Whitewater has leased the field above Masons Branch, also known as the Legg field, for overflow parking.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
