Hike the IBM Glen Preserve

1.7 Miles Total - 400 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Jake Sells

A few miles from downtown, escape and enjoy hiking through the creek or following the trail that run alongside the bank of the creek for a fun adventure for any age.

From the parking lot follow the only trail heading downhill, the yellow trail. At the first and second forks in the trail, stay left remaining on the yellow trail. When you reach the creek, I prefer to trek through the creek on a summer day.

However the yellow trial crosses the creek and continues to run down the creek's bank and crossing a large stone bridge downstream. If you choose the creek passage then you can continue along the yellow trail back up to the parking area when you intersect with this stone bridge.

A great trip to make with families, and is generally desolate with other people exploring.

Got caught in the rain but was still a nice, easy hike that's not too far away.

Beautiful Gorge Near Binghamton

Best gorge hike near Binghamton in my opinion.

A retreat for any time of year.

I am so glad I stumbled upon this adventure last summer. I have hiked this area during all 4 seasons, and it is one of my favorite places to go nearby. This nature preserve has some paved and unpaved trails that are fairly easy to navigate. When the leaves change colors in the fall, this preserve is one of the most beautiful in the area. As winter settles in, the creek freezes and makes for a wonderful photo opportunity.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
