Mount Pleasant Route #1 submitted by Robert Haney

From Waterfront Park:

Left out of the visitor center onto Harry Hallman Blvd (turns into Wingo Way) towards Mathis Ferry.

Left on Mathis Ferry.

Left on 7th avenue (at the fire station).

Go to the end of 7th and take a right on 4th (it’s the only way you can go).

Stay on 4th, cross over 6th and take a right on 5th.

Follow 5th back up to Mathis Ferry and take a right.

Follow Mathis Ferry back to Wingo Way and take a right.

Follow back to starting point.



It’s right at a 5K and during the summer months it provides a bit of shade. The neighborhood that you run through doesn’t have much traffic and if anyone is wondering I’ve never encountered any dogs or other beasts along the way. It’s a nice change from running back to the golf course.
