Traditions Resort - Johnson City, NY
The Glen

The glen is a 200+ acre, mature forest located in the Town of Union.

For centuries people have enjoyed the Glen's majestic trees (some are the oldest in the region), cool waterfalls, colorful wildflowers, and abundant bird and animal life.

The Glen was purchased with the mansion in 1935 and subsequently maintained by the IBM Corporation.

Throughout the years the Glen was enjoyed by many IBM employees and guests. From a casual walk with the dog, a cross country run, or spending the day cross country skiing, visitors repeatedly fell in love with its natural beauty.

In 2006 the ownership of the property changed and the developer donated much of the property to the Fred L. Waterman Conservation Center. This area is now officially designated as an educational, public conservation area. While the property is owned and maintained by the conservation center, the hiking trails which run behind our resort,are easily accessible to our guests through a private access point. Each trail length varies; from 0.7 miles, to our longest trail which is 2.0 miles.

We invite you and your family to enjoy all of our trails whether it’s for exercise or for an adventure. Come and enjoy the great outdoors of Upstate New York.
