Bucklick Branch Falls - Leland O'Neal on Facebook - There is a road on the Nicholas County side of the Gauley called Panther Mountain Road. There is an unmarked road that branches off that takes you to the river above Koontz Bend. The falls are right at the river. You can drive right up to the location. Sorry but this is the best I can describe the location.

  • Location of side road? Maybe (38.237281, -81.024674)

  • Location of intersection of Bucklick Creek and Gauley River (38.236011, -81.027545)
