Comprised of side by side foot Lick Fork Falls and a foot unnamed waterfall. The property is owned by The Nature Conservancy and permission is needed to visit this treacherous and ecologically sensitive area. The information presented in this table is meant to help identify and clarify the physical aspects of the waterfall for comparative purposes. While we try to ensure this information is as accurate as possible, sometimes it will prove necessary to either estimate or flat out guess at certain characteristics where either enough information isn't readily available, is not known, or we were not able to confirm a given trait upon surveying. This information may be changed at any given time to ensure accuracy. The Total Height listed for the waterfall represents the difference in elevation from the top of the uppermost drop, to the bottom of the lowermost drop of the waterfall, including all stretches of interstitial stream in between.
Below is an account of what the writer believed was a first descent of the Lick Fork Gorge in , but according to www. Long story short, Bryan and I got to cut out some of the logs in the drops in the Lick Fork gorge but we also had a small encounter with a landowner and his buddy while they were deer hunting. The encounter went over better than expected for a situation where they had guns and Bryan and I had nothing. Lick Fork is in the heart of private farms and nature conservancy land and anyone interested in boating in that area must take that into consideration. All I can say is that when paddling Lick Fork, be careful not to disturb the landowners. The Lick Fork gorge is a short but very steep gorge that climaxes with a very large drop. The gorge has five major rapids before the large waterfall at the end.
