It was in 1956 when Mr. and Mrs. John Chambliss turned a worn out farm into a place of reflection where the tension of city life is harmonized. Mr. Chambliss envisioned an active changing landscape while Mrs. Chambliss gave emphasis on a place for reflection for those in need.

The Chatanooga piece of land, with each season, provides an opportunity different from every other exploration. This resulted to the creation of a three mile drive of gardens, meadows and ponds.

Designed with a ?Master Plan for Presentation and Development?, the driving loop for the upper and lower trail systems of the twelve mile path, takes the hikers and walkers, and allows further exploration. The upper trail system was perfected for mountain bikers and hikers while the lower trail system allows walkers to experience the walks in the parks, coves, gardens and pavilions.

Reflection Riding was intended for guests to experience the quiet landscape as they walk along the road of flowers, shrubs, trees, and the victory over industrial commercialization. This nice landscape serves as avenue for people to reflect, educate as well as heal themselves.
