You have to be a nature lover to enjoy this place - but if you are it is beautiful and peaceful. There is a treehouse, a small zoo-type wildlife area, and canoes - as well as horse drawn carriage rides. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow. There are lots of narratives for Native American history and civil... More

I first visited Reflections Riding in the early 70s. It was quiet and beautiful then; it's quiet and beautiful now. RR is a park to take a stroll in, a glade to relax and watch the leaves fall in autumn and flowers bud in the spring. Take a bottle of wine and a pretty girl. It worked in 1973 and... More

Great place for a school field trip. Call ahead and they will prepare lessons and activities for the kids. The hike up the base of Lookout Mtn was unexpected but still enjoyable.

I enjoy that you can spend as long as you want walking through the forrest and enjoying the wildlife. I feel it is a bit expensive, but the area is very clean and safe. I usually walk alone to reflect, when things get crazy at home or work.

I have great memories of coming here as a kid and hiking up Lookout Mountain. Now I am fortunate to bring my kids here to enjoy Reflection Riding. We enjoy walking the nature path to see the animal enclosures, the creek and the treehouse. They also enjoy the small playground by the visitors center. We try to make the native... More

Would have loved to tour the gardens but thought the entrance fee was too much. So instead of two people at a lesser price they made zip.

Kids also enjoyed a "nature walk with a staff person. Really interesting for these 6year olds. Had fossils and bones to see and TOUCH too. neat place... More

We loved the 4 mile drive through very pretty scenery and make sure to look closely in the pond some huge fish in there. Loved the red wolves and birds. The treehouse was neat to see. Was well worth the stop.
