Flat Lick Falls in Gray Hawk, Jackson County, was look­ing love­ly after some recent rain. This is water­fall sea­son in Kentucky and now, dur­ing the spring rainy sea­son, is a good time to get out and vis­it a few. Many of Kentucky’s water­falls become just a trick­le dur­ing the sum­mer and fall.

While some can only be accessed by hik­ing on a trail or have no devel­oped trail to them, this one is easy for almost any­one to get to. Jackson County has devel­oped a park here with a short paved trail from the park­ing lot to an over­look of the falls, mak­ing it wheel­chair accessible.
