Davenport Glacier is located in a cirque to the southeast of Boston Peak, North Cascades National Park in the U.S. state of Washington. The glacier is approximately .20 mi (0.32 km) in length resting at between 8,000 and 7,500 ft (2,400 and 2,300 m). The glacier is also northeast of Sahale Mountain and separated from the much larger Boston Glacier to the north by an arête called "Ripsaw Ridge".
