Four Corners Monument

Stand in four states at one time at Four Corners Monument, situated on the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona. Unique amongst Arizona’s many landmarks, Four Corners Monument is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

History & Nature

The Four Corners region didn’t always have such a clear-cut divide. Part of Mexico until 1848, the area has since been home to countless squabbles over state lines. Years of fighting finally ended in 1912, when the first permanent marker – a cement pad – was placed at the site. In 1992, that marker was revamped with a granite and brass designation.

The area around the Four Corners, located on the Colorado Plateau, is also home to countless parks and preserves renowned for their natural beauty – like Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.

Things to Do

You can visit the year-round Four Corners Monument Visitor Center, which offers demonstrations of Navajo culture, as well as Navajo vendors that sell handmade jewelry, crafts and traditional Navajo foods. With plenty of picnic tables, the monument is also the perfect spot to stop for a picnic during an Arizona road trip.

Bring plenty of water when visiting Four Corners Monument, as Arizona weather often means high temperatures, and the remote area of the monument leaves it with no running water.

Hotels, Lodging & Camping

While Four Corners Monument is fairly remote, it’s a comfortable day trip from much of Northern Arizona, including Flagstaff and Winslow, where plenty of hotels are found, as well as the smaller towns of Kayenta and Tuba City. Closer to the monument, camping is common, with several areas offering campsites.
