Harper Glacier is a glacier in Denali National Park and Preserve in the U.S. state of Alaska. The glacier originates on Mount McKinley at more than 19,000 feet (5,800 m) between McKinley's North Peak and South Peak, falling to the northeast between the Karsten Ridge and the Taylor Spur. From about 12,000 feet (3,700 m) it falls between Pioneer Ridge and Karpe Ridge in the Great Icefall down to the Lower Icefall to become Muldrow Glacier.[1][2][3]
