Mount Cleveland is a spectacular and symmetrical stratocone which forms the western portion of Chuginadak Island. It is a near twin to Carlisle which is located just to the northwest across a strait only 2 miles (3 km) wide. Mount Cleveland is very active, with constant steaming from its summit crater and more than a dozen recorded eruptions over the past century. The eruption of 1944 killed an Army serviceman based at a small station on Chuginadak, the only known fatality from an Aleutian eruption. Due to the remote location of the island, the best access is by boat or possibly floatplane, from the nearest city which is Dutch Harbor on Unalaska Island, about 150 miles (250 km) to the northeast.
