Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center

The Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center focuses awareness on native plants and animals by encouraging active engagement with the environment. Located in one of the most biologically diverse regions in North America at the base of Lookout Mountain, the facility provides a tremendous opportunity for everyone to experience and connect with nature.

Day hikers of all levels will enjoy the trails, including the ADA-accessible Blue Heron Boardwalk, which takes visitors through the heart of the center’s seasonal wetlands and along the edge of Lookout Creek. CA&NC trails also connect to the 40+ mile trail system in Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.
