If you were making up a detour, which route would like to ride?

I don't know the other roads in the area. On the map, it looks like a left on Mannheim from Glenville after Hokes and then right to PA 216 and then a left onto Smoketown Rd seems shorter. Is Mannheim a steep climb?
The other way would be PA 216 to right on Stone Church, then left onto Miller, left onto Watertank, then right back on Smoketown. Jim has a ride that goes up Miller but goes right on Watertank not left back to Smoketown.
Anyone know what these roads are like?

No. The bridge is just after the return to PA 216. Also the bridge is totally gone at this time with no way to cross it on foot.
I walked down the RR tracks to see if I could ford the stream further up. No luck.

I tried to ad lib, on today's 5 Towns/5 Valleys ride, the Smoketown/Pentland to Jefferson route and was turned back by a total bridge out on PA 216 between Glenville and Smoketown.
Anyone planning on leading any of the Seven Valleys rides will need an alternate route to go around the detour.

Looks like snow and rain are out of the forecast for Saturday. I added 5 towns and 5 valleys-- the shortened version of the 7 Valleys ride. It will be in the low 40's and cloudy Saturday AM, so 45 miles with 2500' of climbing and many rest stop option should be a good fit for the weather.
Check the schedule before coming! I will pull the ride if the weather does not cooperate.

I have changed the start time to 9:30 am for Saturday's ALL PACE ride to the Amish Markets. It will give a little more time for afternoon activities over the Easter/ Passover weekend.

I added this ride for Sunday March 25 on Saturday evening. Wanted something between the other 2 rides on the Sunday schedule. While the distance seems short, given the predicted temps and the elevation gain, I think this ride is a good fit. Also, I wanted to do a different ride in this area.
This version is a slight revision; I will bring both versions of course.

I added Gary Brandon's ride in the Glen Rock Shrewsbury area for tomorrow. Many familiar roads. Snack stop at Rutters in Shrewsbury

After looking at some webcams of snow covered roads in the Glen Rock area, I have decided that there will not be enough time for the roads to thaw adequately for a safe ride tomorrow. I am cancelling this ride.
