I'm confident that the Third Time will be a "Charm".  We will head out on Hoffer Road and wind our way through the back roads to Mount Gretna and loop around the Lake.  We'll head back from Mount Gretna on Rt. 117 and take a break where the trail crosses 117.  We'll head back on Rt. 214 to Elizabethtown, wind through town on 743, and take Rt. 230 back to the Start.
