The Mendel Glacier is a glacier on the north side of Mount Mendel in the Sierra Nevada, California. The name is commonly used, however the name is not recognized by the United States Geological Survey in the Geographic Names Information System.
The middle and lower portions of the glacier are covered with rock debris.
An US Army plane crashed above or into the glacier in 1942 with four airmen on board during a navigation training mission.
