No. You start at the parking area for the East River Trail on the road into Upper Works just north of the MacIntyre Furnace. Allen is an 18-mile hike.

If you want short and steep try Adams from that same trailhead. Under 5 miles round-trip with about 1500' of ele gain in the last mile to the summit (approx 1900' ele gain total). STEEP. If you climb the fire tower you are rewarded with one of the better views in the Adirondacks. But you must climb the tower. Summit is treed in.
