Located in the Daniel Boone National Forest in southern Kentucky, Princess Falls and Lick Creek Falls are located within an easy hike from one another.
The southern part of the Bluegrass state is blessed with a significant number of waterfalls that are located within an earshot from the Big South Fork River. Located along Lick Creek, Princess Falls is a 13-foot-high waterfall formed by a rock ledge. According to folklore, the waterfall was named after Princess Cornblossom, a Cherokee princess, although there were no royalty titles in the Cherokee tribe. Follow Lick Creek further and the towering 64-foot-high Lick Creek Falls comes into view.
