The arboretum is a nice place to relax and enjoy nature while in Chattanooga. They also have an aviary with large birds of prey that is pretty cool, and a den of Red Wolves. At the right time of day you can hear them howling......very spooky. While there be sure and take a canoe trip up Lookout Creek. They rent... More

The only reason I gave the Arboretum an average rating is because much of the area was flooded and we only got to do the 3-mile ride through a small area. However, what we did get to see was wonderful! We will certainly revisit the Arboretum on our next trip with the hopes that it will be back to normal.

The reflection riding and the trails were all beautiful, and I loved the signs along the riding with the war history in the area. It's a lengthy drive that's worth the $10. The tree house is really neat, and canoe rentals are affordable. The wildlife trail made me kind of sad at first, because I felt like the cages were... More

A great morning's outing with grandchildren (9, 7, 3). A little display room...trails to walk...a few bird/animal exhibits. Saw wild turkeys on the drive -- bet scenery is extra pretty in the spring or fall. Staff was very friendly. Would be nice to have more programs.

Based upon the web site we were anticipating an interesting arboretum. Well, that is not quite the case. An interesting drive around the property; we stopped at the Pavillion for a bite to eat and tried to find a trail head to walk. The map shows several trails with distances clearly noted, but there is no signage in the attraction.... More

A great place to go especially when they have their annual sale of Tennessee Wildflowers and plants that they grow. You can fill your yard with natural plants that are hearty and designed by God to grow where you plant them in Eastern Tennessee!

Our house is really close to there, so we go really often. We have a membership, and I suggest you do the same, especially if you plan on coming more than once. Our membership came in very handy, and saved us a lot of money, because we often canoe there. Not only is there the boardwalk and the big loop... More

Iv'e been there many times. It is nestled in a cove between the mountains, and is beatiful! The best time to go is the 1st or2nd week in April. They have a giant display of wild flowers, The animal refuge there is really neat as well. They have Red Wolves, they are trying to raise the population off the endangered... More

Many regional plants, a twice a year plant sale and vegetable garden lots to see. It is connected to the Chattanooga Nature Center so you can make a day of light trail hiking, a driving tour of the foliage and most everything natural Chattanooga has to offer.

We visited the Chattanooga zoo, and it was very small, so we finished much earlier than planned. My husband found this place in a brochure, so we gave it a go. What a charming, calm, and beautiful area. It's at the bottom of signal mountain, a bit tricky to get to. I suggest you call there, the recording gives you... More
