The Four Corners Monument is the only place where four states border each other: Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. It’s located on the Navajo Indian Reservation, about forty-give minutes southwest of Cortez.
Inside the boundaries is an Indian Market with various booths, selling everything from hand-made jewelry to tomahawks. There’s also a small visitor center and portable toilets. A small fee is collected for accessing the Four Corners Monument Tribal Park, which is open every day of the year.
It’s situated in a remote part of Southwest Colorado with not too much around, except high desert. There is a single hiking trail, Dancin’ Horse Trail, which takes about thirty minutes to complete and overlooks Sleeping Ute Mountain. The Monument is a worthwhile trip while road tripping the Four Corners states.
