Mount Brooks is a mountain peak in the central Alaska Range in Denali National Park and Preserve. The 11,890-foot (3,620 m) mountain is part of a ridge extending northeastward from the main Mount McKinley massif, which includes Pyramid Peak and Mount Silverthrone. The ridge lies between Brooks Glacier and Traleika Glacier, overlooking Muldrow Glacier to the north. The summit is partly covered by ice.[1][2][3]
