Promoting the development and enjoyment of Tennessee trails.
Tuesday, January 10 — Reflection Riding, easy-moderate, 3 to 5 miles. We’ll meet at the Reflection Riding parking lot and then hike on trails that may need a return visit by trail maintenance volunteers sometime in the future. Less than 15 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, Reflection Riding is a tranquil and beautiful arboretum in the valley west of Lookout Mountain, with pleasant woods and meadows and ponds to enjoy. (Note: We’ll be hiking in areas different from a recent historic tour conducted by NPS ranger Jim Ogden.) Members of our hiking chapter have free access due to our volunteer activities at this wonderful nature preserve. Bring snacks and water and wear sturdy hiking boots. Watch the weather forecast and dress in layers. Meet at the main Reflection Riding parking lot at 8:30 am ET. Please register with hike leader Trish Appleton at 423-240-3443 or Appletonfirstname.lastname@example.org.
