Reflection Riding Arboretum & Botanical Garden

Address: 400 Garden Rd. Chattanooga, TN 37419 Phone: (423) 821-9582

Reflection Riding’s 300 acres consists of a three-mile driving loop and a twelve-mile network of hiking trails. Hundreds of labels identify many of the over one thousand different species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers and grasses. Rustic signs tell of the geology, history and botany of the area. Enjoy the many seasons our gardens and forests offer with beautiful vistas and lush growth. Spring stages a dazzling display of wildflowers in every imaginable color softened by the summer's growth of wild, field flowers, ferns and flowering shrubs. Autumn brings with it the dramatic display of foliage in a variety of hues as well as the subtle gold of asters and purple ironweed. Even the stark beauty of winter has a special place here – evergreens, spectacular rock formations and moss stand out from the prevailing landscape declaring themselves where they have been hidden during the blooming periods of spring and summer. A lovely location for small weddings. For more information on this Chattanooga arboretum, call 423-821-9582.
