Brooks Glacier is a glacier in Denali National Park and Preserve in the U.S. state of Alaska. The glacier originates on the east face of Mount Silverthrone at Brooks Gap. The 9-mile (14 km) glacier moves northeast, joining Muldrow Glacier between Mount Brooks and Ragged Peak.[1][2] Brooks Glacier was named by T.G. Gerdine of the U.S. Geological Survey circa 1900 for geologist Alfred Hulse Brooks.[3]
