The Corno di Lago Scuro glacier is located in the most north-western part of the Park. It takes its name from the peak above, the Corno di Lago Scuro (3102 m). It is a mountain glacier with an area of 0.04 km2 previously included in the Presena west glacier.

The Corno di Lago Scuro glacier is close to the highest mountain in the entire park, Cima Presanella (3558 m). It is also located near the ridge that traces its northern border. Here stand Torre Scarazon, Monte Gabbiolo, Cima Vermiglio, Cima d’Amola, and Cima Vedretta Nera. From these peaks rise the main glaciers of the Park within the Presanella mountain range. They too, like those of Adamello, suffer the irremediable consequences of global warming. They are therefore progressively evolving and constantly being resized.

The Presanella glaciers are fewer and smaller than those of the Adamello. This is due to the different shape of the massif.
