Mount Allen is located on the boundary of Banff National Park and Kootenay National Park near the Lake Louise area. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, or Wenkchemna Valley. It is part of the Bow Range and Wenkchemna Peaks which tower above Moraine Lake. Postcard and calendar images of Moraine Lake usually show Mount Allen as a backdrop to the lake as it sharply rises 1300 meters above the lake between Mount Perren to its northeast and Mount Tuzo to its northwest. Mount Allen is named for Samuel Allen who was an early explorer in the area in the late 1800's.
