Licking Creek is a 56.6-mile-long (91.1 km)[1] tributary of the Potomac River in Pennsylvania and Maryland in the United States.[2]

Licking Creek is born on the west slope of Tuscarora Mountain, near Cowans Gap State Park, flows through eastern Fulton County and a corner of Franklin County in Pennsylvania, and then enters Washington County in Maryland, to join the Potomac River downstream of Hancock.[2]
