The Second Broad River is a tributary of the Broad River in western North Carolina in the United States. Via the Broad and Congaree rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Santee River, which flows to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Second Broad River rises in south-central McDowell County about 5 miles (8 km) southwest of Marion, and flows generally southeastwardly through Rutherford County, passing to the east of the town of Forest City. It briefly enters Cleveland County before flowing into the Broad River from the north, about 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Forest City.
