Park in the McCarty Park parking area which is very spacious. Do a loop or two around the park and the lake. Continue across Beloit Road and hop into the Honey Creek drainage ditch and run down to Morgan Ave then S 68th Street. Loop around and come back to the park.

This is an unusual run in that you spend several miles down in the engineered Honey Creek depression. This is a concrete spillway of sorts that I guess is the path of Honey Creek. It's a bit steep getting down and up but nothing too difficult. A few road crossings as well. Something different, give it a go.
