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 Middle Branch Little Magalloway River, located in the Androscoggin River watershed of Maine and New Hampshire.

The West Branch rises in Pittsburg, New Hampshire, north of 3,627-foot (1,106 m) Stub Hill, the highest point in Pittsburg. The brook-sized river drops to the east into Maine, descending another 700 feet before joining the Middle Branch of the Little Magalloway a short distance upstream from Aziscohos Lake.[2]
