While walking on the V&E Greenline recently I got curious about Lick Creek, wondering where it came from. I googled it, naturally, and found that it meanders all through Memphis. From the map, it looks like it's part of a series of creeks and bayous that start a block or so south of Central just west of South Fenwick and wander around town until they find their way to the Mississippi River by way of the Wolf River, but I can't find a map online where the smaller waterways are labeled. I can't tell where Lick Creek specifically begins and ends.
Here's a view towards the north:
