A Lyndhurst Foundation grant enabled Reflection Riding and Arboretum & Nature Center to build our canoe launch in 2009 in conjunction with the construction of Paddler’s Perch.
The canoe launch is a floating dock that rises and falls according to the level of the creek. It is strong enough to withstand the varying water levels and currents.
The canoe storage beside the Paddler’s Perch provides guests with easy, efficient access to the floating dock and launch area.
The canoe launch and Paddler’s Perch mark Reflection Riding as a node on the Tennessee River Blueway. Paddlers can ride downstream to the Nature Center, where they can park their canoes, kayaks or paddleboards before heading to the Visitor Center for their admission ticket to Reflection Riding.
