The Cleetwood Cove Trail is a difficult 1.7 mile out-and-back trail that leads to the shores of Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. This is the only hike at Crater Lake that you can take to the water and swim at the lake, so it's a popular heavily-trafficked hike. On the way down, you get amazing views of the banks of the ancient caldera, which is now just the large banks of the lake, Wizard Island, and the surrounding coniferous woodland.

The hike back up is strenuous with many switchbacks along the way, so plan to bring plenty of water. At the bottom of the trail, you can relax along the shores of the lake or go for a swim. There's not a whole lot of room near the bottom of the trail and it tends to fill up fairly quickly as this is a popular hike at the park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time, money, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes, so we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time payment. Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation and it's free!

Regardless, thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!
