Noisy Creek Glacier is in North Cascades National Park in the U.S. state of Washington, .50-mile (0.80 km) northwest of Bacon Peak. Noisy Creek Glacier has retreated and left behind a series of small proglacial lakes. Noisy Creek Glacier descends from 6,400 to 5,800 ft (2,000 to 1,800 m). A ridge separates Noisy Creek Glacier from Green Lake Glacier to the east. The National Park Service is currently studying Noisy Creek Glacier as part of their glacier monitoring project.
