Perc test

Looking to do a dry well to bury one downspout. Dug a 4 ft by 2.5 hole and put in about 10 gallons of water. Monitored and got about 5 inch drop over 1 hour. It's a clay based soil. I wasn't impressed by this. Should I abondoned this? My other option is I could dig a trench that would have to go under the walkway through the yard and empty into the street. Does option B sound better? I wasn't sure where to post this.
