There is a white quartz rock on top of each petroglyph rock. It can be walked in about 15 minutes. It also goes by the Montepulciano and the Pinot Grigio vineyards.
Labyrinth is located behind the winery and along part of the Petroglyph Trail. It can be walked in 15 minutes or longer, depending on the person and their thoughts along the way.
