Mount Little is located on the boundary of Banff National Park and Kootenay National Park south of the Lake Louise area. It is situated directly on the Continental Divide 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, and can be readily seen from the road that approaches Moraine Lake. Mount Little rises 1300 meters above Moraine Lake between Mount Bowlen to its northwest and Mount Fay to its east. Mount Little is named for George Little who was a member of the first ascent party in 1901.
