The IBM Glen comprises over 200 acres in the Town of Union, in the heart of the so-called Triple Cites region in New York State's Southern Tier. The IBM Glen is a "Place For All Seasons"! The IBM Glen contains a mature forest with some of the oldest and largest trees in Broome County, and its cascading gorge is the region's finest. For centuries people have enjoyed the Glen's majestic trees, cool waterfalls, colorful wildflowers, and abundant bird and animal life.

The trail has its highlights, like the stone bridge. Better markings on the switchback would help. The bagged dog droppings left at various places along the trail were disgusting. If you take a dog to the trail, take their waste with you.

Pretty woods. Not much to the waterfall in September, but I am sure it's awesome in June! Still a nice, mostly easy walk.

The trail itself is just ok; not much to see. What makes this hike awesome is the glen with stone bridge and waterfall. We took the advice of another reviewer and followed the yellow trail to the left at both the forks. At the end of the yellow trail (where the posted private property sign is) follow the wolf creek trail down to the glen to see the stone bridge and waterfall. This part of the hike can be somewhat treacherous but definitely worth it. I recommend grabbing a trail map at the start of the trail or taking a picture of the trail map that is posted.

Great hiking, but if you want to see the water, when you get to the split go left and then left again. No water on the big loop and that's a definite uphill hike either way you go! The kids enjoyed catching Pokemon and it was nice to reminisce about the old IBM days when that trail used to be exclusive to IBM families only.
