About Elves Chasm

This famous oasis is a gem during hot summer months. Elves Chasm is accessible from the river via a 5 minute hike up Royal Arch creek. The easier trail is on the left side of the creek (facing away from the Colorado). Elves Chasm is a gorgeous pool with hanging ferns and occasional flowers. It is a beautiful place to hang out on a warm day. Climbing up and around and jumping into the pool below is a rite of passage.

Camping is prohibited at Elves Chasm.
