Eldridge Glacier is a major glacier in Denali National Park and Preserve in the U.S. state of Alaska. The 30-mile (48 km) long glacier originates on the east side of Explorers Peak, flowing northeast to a basin below Mount Eldridge, gathering flow from several glaciated cirques, then flowing southeast to the valley of the Chulitna River, where it gives rise to the Fountain River. A large unnamed tributary glacier joins Eldridge Glacier a few miles above its terminus.[1][2][3]
