Knowing that it was going to rain the entire weekend, I took off work on Friday (April 30, 2010) to go hiking.  I ended up at Grayson Lake State Park.  Other than the golf course, Lick Falls is the only trail they have, besides the .8 mile Beech - Hemlock Trail.  (The 2 can be combined for an extended hike). 

The waterfall is nice, but difficult to get a picture of without falling off the cliff.  Try going on a pretty day after a rain.  Apparently the flow of the falls depends on the amount of rain, and they become non-existant during dry times. 

This hike is described in the book Hiking Kenucky:  A Guide to Kenucky's Greatest Hiking Adventures by Michael H. Brown.  It is listed as Hike #3. 

Read the description in the book before the hike.  The trail isn't well marked.  The blazes are orange & yellow, sometimes just yellow, and one point blue and yellow.  But it would be hard to get lost as there is really just the 2 trails.  The worst that would happen would be that you miss the trail exit, and end up with the 4 mile hike instead of the 3.
