Jackson Glacier is approximately the 7th largest of the remaining 25 glaciers in Glacier National Park located in the U.S. state of Montana. In 2005 glacier was measured at 250 acres (1.0 qkm), yet when first documented in 1850, the glacier also included the now separate Blackfoot Glacier and together, they covered 1,875 acres (7.59 qkm). Between 1966 and 2005, Jackson Glacier lost almost a third of its acreage. When the two glaciers were united prior to their separation sometime before 1929, they were known simply as Blackfoot Glacier.
