About Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center
Nestled at the foot Lookout Mountain, Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center is 317 acres of forest, field, and stream. Be prepared to encounter native wildlife, including deer, turkey, beaver, and many species of birds. Observe captive native animals such as the highly endangered Red Wolves in our Wildlife Wanderland. Walk in the footsteps of history while traversing our unique Arboretum and gardens. Follow the Reflection Riding Loop, and visit the George S. Bryan Discovery Forest Treehouse and the Paddler’s Perch. You’ll find something for everyone. A leisurely picnic under the trees, a restful paddle down the creek, a heart-pumping hike on 15 miles of trails – all yours to explore!
