Shakes Glacier is located in the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness about 30 miles east of Wrangell, Alaska. It drains the southern portion of the Stikine Icefield and terminates in Shakes Lake. Like other glaciers from the Stikine Icefield, Shakes Glacier is losing ice. Between the 1980’s and 2014 the ice retreated approximately 1.4 miles. Icebergs are always present in the lake and at the narrow entrance to the lake in Shakes Slough.
