Honey Creek (Pennsylvania)

Honey Creek is a 20.3-mile-long (32.7 km)[1] tributary of Kishacoquillas Creek in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, in the United States.

Honey Creek drains the northeast end of the Kishacoquillas Valley. Treaster Run joins just downstream of the community of Locke Mills. Sections of the creek bed are composed of porous limestone, allowing water to enter and flow through Alexander Caverns, near the community of Shrader. During low flow, on the surface the creek appears to disappear, while continuing to flow through the caverns. The creek joins Kishacoquillas Creek at Reedsville, approximately 6.9 miles (11.1 km) upstream of the Juniata River.
