Added by The Outbound Collective

Hike to a waterfall and views of Grayson Lake.

The Grayson Lake State Park has two trails – the Lick Falls Loop Trail, and the 0.8 mile Beech-Hemlock Forest Trail. Lick Falls is best done after a rain, to make sure the falls are flowing. A trail map of the park can be found here.

How to Get There

Great When There's Water

Beautiful (and easy) hike all along the creek. There are lots of mini falls and a few spots to take a dip, if you're so inclined. If it's dry out, though, the water tends to run low and it isn't quite as exciting (like any river). And know that if there's been some recent rain, the falls will be great but the trail will be muddy. So wear appropriate shoes.
