A unique place, very serene and lovely
Jun 2021
This is a fascinating place. The detail of the building replicas is amazing. I have visited 2x, taking a group of 8 seniors the 2nd time. The walking paths are narrow in some places, but we had one person using a rolling walker and were able to get a view of all formations from some location, even though she could not take the walker on some of the paths. It is a relaxing place, very spiritual. If you have difficulty walking, take your cane with you, take your time, and you will still enjoy this. Admission is free but donations are requested to help with the maintenance.

Creative rock replicas

Very creative. Small miniature replicas of landmarks and castles made from river stones and shells. Lots of pretty flowers Along the paths are religious oriented messages spelled out in stones. Fabulous way to spend an hour walking. You can even have a picnic at one of the tables provided.

A special place

We frequent this special garden! It is BEAUTIFUL and one of a kind. The creators of this garden truly poured their hearts out in building each of these beautiful castles. You will want to bring a picnic and stay a while.

Very lovely and unique stop
Apr 2021
It doesn't take long to go through this garden but it's well worth whatever time you spend there. Such great detail. Nice replicas. And nice encouraging words on rocks. :) Bible verses or phrases and such. The water / river near it is very messy. They do have some picnic areas. We didn't have time to try the trails. But maybe next time. Bring cash for a donation.

Something Different for a Great family stop for picnic
Apr 2021 • Family
Stopped here on our way to Chattanooga. Several picnic tables. Cow pasture near by so on a windy day may get a fragrance of cow patty hear and there. Garden is mostly shaded. Very calming with light music playing. Kids loved looking in the buildings and finding the mini figures. It’s sad to see where people were too rough and damaged the art (this is sparse) There is no sign from the main road. You turn into the church parking lot and go around back. Then it’s obvious. Only bathrooms are portables.
There is a 1 mile loop trail that goes into woods on other side of the creek. Somewhat strenuous as it is a little steep because it brings you to the ridge top. Nice view from top. Second bridge was out so we only went to top from the left side then came back down. Husband went down the other side and said coming from the right was even steeper.
Definitely leave a donation so they can continue to maintain and add to it.

I’m glad I made a second trip

This was simple beautiful. The last time I went to visit was a little over a year ago and I was pleasantly pleased with the new displays that were built. A must see if your ever in the area.

Cute Display
Oct 2020
The Rock Garden was a fun little stop. There is nothing that jumps out at you when you arrive to let you know you have made it, but when you get to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, the drive on the left side of the building will take you to the display. The various miniature structures are very detailed, and it's obvious that someone has put a lot of time and effort into it. The area is located beside a stream, and there are places to stop and enjoy nature and meditate. There is no charge to enter but please do donate while you're there.

Amazing!
Jul 2020 • Couples
We loved this place. Very peaceful and calming. Path is narrow and uneven so not advised for someone with mobility issues, however there are several places to sit and enjoy the sights. Great area to picnic if you choose. Definitely worth the trip. Off the beaten path- my kind of place. Would definitely visit again.

This is one of my favorite places on earth. It brings me such peace and heals my soul. You will not find another place on earth like it. Bring a picnic and spend some time just soul searching. Enjoy what really matters in life.

Amazing Details
Jan 2020
This place is truly a hidden gem! The details on many of the miniatures are amazing. They are adding new structures all the time so there is always something new to see. A lovely place to spend an afternoon.
