About Us

Nestled along the western slope of Lookout Mountain, you will find Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center, one this area’s most historic and scenic natural wonders.

Discover 317 acres of forest, field and stream. Walk, bike or drive around the Reflection Riding Loop to experience its beautiful gardens, reflecting ponds, lush forests, and colorful wildflower meadows.

Be prepared to encounter native wildlife, including deer, turkey, turtles, beaver, and many species of birds that thrive in this unique habitat.

Travel in the footsteps of early Tennessee Valley Native Americans, Spanish explorers, pioneer settlers and Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers.

Visit the charming George S. Bryan Discovery Forest Treehouse and Paddler’s Perch on the banks of Lookout Creek.

Follow the wheel-chair accessible Blue Heron Boardwalk to the Wildlife Wanderland, where you can observe many species of captive native animals, including highly endangered Red Wolves.

Reflection Riding has something for everyone, from a leisurely picnic under the trees, and a paddle down the creek, to a heart-pumping hike on the 15 miles of trails.  It is all yours to explore!
