This is a very beautiful arboretum in the valley below Lookout Mountain. It has trails, so a great place to hike. It has a few hundred specimens of trees that are marked. There is a wetlands and a nature center with rescued animals, so interesting for the kids, too.

We really didn't know where to go. Beautiful sunny fall day. Our choice of visiting the place was mainly due to the fact that they have red wolves. Staff/rangers, were very nice and helpful. Right when we parked the car at the visitor center we were welcomed by an owl...beautiful animal (see picture). The walk towards the animals enclosures was... More

Stopped on the way to Rock City and Lookout Mountain as we participate in the reciprocal garden program. Samantha turned out to be our best tour guide of things to do and see in Chattanooga. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll on the trails, which could me better marked with signage, over to the creek where one can go out in... More

This is a nice little piece of stewardship. The conservatory has beautifully maintained trails. There is hiking to do or, if you can't make that, places to drive right up and see. The trees are varied and the flora a great sampling of plant life. I'm impressed at the diversity and beauty here and you should be too!

We were looking for an out of the touristy thing to do in Chattanooga and came across the Reflection Riding Arboretum. What a wonderful, quiet experience. A school bus had unloaded right as we pulled up, but we never heard the kids. The short hike to the wildlife enclosure was most pleasant. We also took the self-paced driving tour. However,... More

My brother and his wife booked the arboretum as their wedding venue, and not only was it perfect and absolutely gorgeous, the staff was very helpful and considerate during all of our frenzied planning and last-minute mistakes. The scenery is amazing and there is a lot of land to explore and enjoy.

I love going to Reflection Riding. It is an oasis not far from the city. Plant sales 2X yearly of native plants. Amazing Spring, Summer and Fall foliage.

We loved the short 12 minute walk to the animal preserve and tree house. The caretaker was there and told us a few stories of the animals they had there. The tree house was really interesting to see. We also done the driving tour. They need better signage of which way to drive. The map they give at front desk... More
