Chesler Opening
This arch is in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. Park at the picnic/parking area at the foot of Elephant Hill. The trail to Druid Arch starts here. In about 2.1 miles it enters Elephant Canyon. In about another quarter mile, take the trail which branches to the right. In about another 3/4 mile, this trail enters Chesler Park where it forks right and left. The right fork goes along the north edge of Chesler Park while the left fork goes south around the Park and continues through the Joint Trail. At this fork, look high in the pinnacles to the NE, (over your left shoulder as you are gazing into Chesler Park) and Chesler Opening will become visible. Rob estimates the span to be about 20 ft.
