Elk Lick Creek Walk

July 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Experience the beauty and wildlife of Elk Lick Creek

Elk Lick Creek flows through the heart of Floracliff before its confluence with the Kentucky River. Along the way, the stream and adjacent limestone cliffs provide habitat for a diversity of amphibians, birds, insects, fish, and more. Join Floracliff Naturalists on this trek along a 1/2-mile section of the creek to experience the scenery, wildlife, and geology of the area.

Program Leader: Floracliff Naturalists

Hiking Level: Moderate to strenuous in difficulty due to the steep terrain to access the creek (~250-feet elevation change) and navigating uneven rocks and slick surfaces at the creek; about 1.5 miles

Bring: water and snacks/trail-lunch

Optional: hiking poles, snack, camera, binoculars, extra pair of shoes and socks to change into after the hike

Due to the limited access to Elk Lick Creek, creek walk programs will be canceled when thunderstorms are predicted during, or in the hours following a scheduled program. Participants will be notified using the email address provided during registration.

Floracliff has multiple entry gates. The meeting location for this program will be emailed to all registered participants a few days before the program.
