Allison Pass, elevation 1,352 m, is located at kilometre 60, the highest point on the Hope-Princeton Highway (opened 1949) through the Cascade Mountains of southern British Columbia. It was named for John Fall Allison. Allison was commissioned by Governor J. Douglas in about 1860 to inspect gold strikes on the Similkameen River. He returned to report finding a new low pass between the Skagit and Similkameen rivers. Allison mined near Hope and was later a pioneer rancher in the Princeton area. Manning Provincial Park headquarters is situated 9 km east of the pass.
