1.1 mile loop around the house and overlook of the brewery. If you care to do a little more venturing, a loose & rocky road will lead you to the lower level. All in all, a little over 2 miles. Well worth a couple hours to stretch your legs and learn some pretty cool history. They are doing a great job of restoring things to their original luster!! $4 per adult, $3 for children & seniors.
