The Palisade Glacier is a glacier located on the northeast side of the Palisades within the John Muir Wilderness. The glacier descends from the flanks of four mountain peaks over 14,000′ in elevation of which North Palisade 14,242′ is third highest peak in the Sierra Nevada Range.

The cirque containing the Palisade Glacier has a history of thousands of years of glaciation. The modern glacier attained its last maximum extent during the Little Ice Age, between 250 and 170 years ago – a period also known as the Matthes glaciation in the Sierra Nevada.

The glacier is under a mile long and half mile wide. It is located between 13,400 and 12,000; elevation and moves at a rate of 20 feet per year, although it is also retreating. Palisade Glacier is one of the few glaciers in California that terminates in a proglacial lake dammed by its former moraine and the lake is turquoise colored from the glacial powder suspended in the water. The Big Pine Lakes below the glacier are also the same color.
