Went a couple days ago, snow pack was good. Very easy, nothing all to special to see but a great place to bring my dog for a walk. Just make sure in the winter you have a dog who knows a command not to go in the creek.

Silvermine Lake to Black Mountain Trail

One of the better hikes in the region! Trail is very well maintained and a relatively easy to moderate hike with the exception of two or three steeper sections once you pass Silver Mine Road. However, you are rewarded many fold with views looking back to Silver Mine Lake and then further one with Manhattan. We did the hike a day after 10 inches of snow fell on the area. The track was still in very good condition and well packed by others - expect for the steeper AT section after Silver Mine Road. It was still a great hike!!

We went up on a day where the ice on the trail was treacherous. But it still only took us about 45 minutes. Great views at the top for the effort (at least it would be on a dry trail).

The IBM Glen Trail: An Educational Preserve of the Fred L. Waterman Center

My family has come to The Glen to walk many times and love it. The trail is kept fairly well. There are some spots that have been washed out along the sides of the trail. It winds around and through the woods and is so calm and peaceful that you wouldn't even know the interstate is not far away. The parking lot is at the top of the hill so when walking back to your vehicle it will be all up hill, and a great workout. The stone bridge is part of the old trail that followed the creek. That trail is in need of repair and isn't passable in some spots so be careful if you go that route because you will have to climb over and under and around trees, rocks, and banks to continue. I highly recommend this trail.

My family has walked at the IBM Glen trail for many years. The trails are fairly well maintained. Due to flooding in the past some of the stone and cement bridges are gone but there is still one that is standing and usable that crosses the creek. It is a beautiful place to walk in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn. We haven't gone in the winter. The parking lot for the trail is small but nice. The trail starts at the top of the hill so walking back to the parking lot is all up hill. It is a great workout in some beautiful scenery. I highly recommend this trail.
