Description

Lick Creek Trail follows an old roadbed along a ridge for one mile before changing to a footpath. During the next .5 mile, the trail will descend over 300 feet in elevation. Several sets of metal stairs will be encountered. You will walk behind rock overhangs and shelters, and even cross beneath a wet season waterfall before reaching the creek at 2 miles along the trail. At 2.25 miles, Lick Creek Falls Trail takes off to the left. This is a .58 mile trail to Lick Creek Falls.

If continuing on the Lick Creek Trail, be sure to watch for the white diamonds that mark the way. It will be necessary to cross Lick Creek several times, so be prepared for the possibility of getting your feet wet. Although the creek isn’t too deep, it is wide in places. At 3.35 miles along the trail, you will reach Princess Falls. These falls are named after Princess Cornblossom, a Cherokee Princess. The trail ends at 3.45 miles when it connects with the Sheltowee Trace. The Sheltowee Trace runs north and south along the Big South Fork River here. By following the Sheltowee southward, Yamacraw Bridge and KY 92 will be reached within 1.2 miles.
