Travel to Four Corners Monument

Four Corners Monument is a unique place where four states comes together: Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.

The Monument is located about 85 miles west of Durango, Colorado, and about 80 miles east of Kayenta, Arizona (see area map below). To reach to the Monument, turn off US Highway 160 onto New Mexico Highway 597.

The original marker erected in 1912 was a simple cement pad, but has since been redone in granite and brass. The Visitor Center is open year round, and features a Demonstration Center with Navajo artisans. Navajo vendors sell handmade jewelry, crafts and traditional Navajo foods nearby.

The monument also marks the boundary between two semi-autonomous native American governments, the Navajo Nation, which maintains the monument as a tourist attraction, and the Ute Mountain Ute Indian Reservation.
