This was nice and relaxing. There are great hiking trails, wildlife rehabilitation and a driving loop. Well, worth the stop.

We were there on a Saturday for bird photography session. The place is beautiful and well maintained. The best thing about it is the people who manage this place and volunteers. They are committed and enjoy their jobs. They have wild wolves (7 of the 400 in existence) and a host of rescued owls and birds. A great place to... More

Great place to walk or drive and see native plants, birds, turkeys, and wildlife. Canoeing available. Sponsor of tremendous native plant sale twice a year. Truly a "breath of fresh air" can be enjoyed here.

This was a great place to walk and get some exercise however for a dog friendly place everything you want to see is off limits with a dog. my biggest problem though was with a staff member (older lady in a red truck) who went speeding through to the caretakers area with the horses. Thankfully I heard her coming and... More

Beautiful place, you can walk or drive the loop around the property. I went for the history tour which was fantastic. The professor was so engaging and I learned a lot about the indigenous people of the area. They also have some animals you can view. It is so peaceful there and the staff are friendly and helpful. Great place... More

I have recently visited Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center several times over the past year and I plan to return frequently. This is a beautiful piece of land with over 300 acres nestled between Lookout Creek and iconic Lookout Mountain. There are trails (about 15 miles in all) that cover the property and also connect to other trail systems.... More

Gorgeous, relaxing, scenic surroundings. You can visit the conservation animals like the red wolves then bounce over to the tree house experience. Once done there you can enter the main areas either on foot, on bike or by car and visit the vast areas of flowers, animals in nature, stop and see the structures and even have a picnic (please...

We did the car trip this last time, but have done the trails in the past. It is a wonderful place to just relax and enjoy all that God has blessed us with in the Lookout Mountain area. The beauty of this place is remarkable and the signs and brochures that provide information on what you are seeing just enhance... More

This park like setting isn't the easiest area to find, but find it you must since it is worth it. Lot of trails to walk and it is a venue to special events like birthday parties, weddings.

The areas to walk around are very pretty. It would be a nice place to have a picnic. There aren't a lot of animals but the ones that they have are kept in nice enclosures. Cost-wise it's not bad if you're planning to kayak or spend the day exploring the area. There is a driving loop and areas to pull... More
