The West Branch of the Little Magalloway River is a 5.3-mile-long (8.5 km)[1] river in northern New Hampshire and northwestern Maine in the United States. It is a tributary of the Little Magalloway River, located in the Androscoggin River watershed of Maine and New Hampshire.

The West Branch rises in Pittsburg, New Hampshire, in Stub Pond (3,480 feet above sea level), just northeast of the 3,627 foot summit of Stub Hill, the highest point in Pittsburg. The brook-sized river drops over 1,200 feet in 1.5 miles off the north slope of Stub Hill, then turns east and enters Maine, descending another 700 feet before joining the Little Magalloway a short distance upstream from Aziscohos Lake.
