Starting in Henry County, Floyd’s Fork runs 62 miles through eastern Jefferson County. It is named in honor of John Floyd, an early leader who settled in Louisville more than 240-years ago and was fatally wounded by natives near the confluence of Floyd’s Fork and the Salt River. Sycamore, oak, maple and many other trees native to our area, thrive along the slopes and in the Floyd’s Fork valley. The leaf images in this piece were created using actual leaves from the watershed.
