See "Other Attraction" below for similar sites you can explore while this one is closed.
The Four Corners Monument, also known as Four Corners Tribal Park, is the only unique landmark in the United States where four states intersect at one point. Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado meet at a granite and brass monument. This Monument is located in the heart of the Navajo Nation and is owned and operated by the Navajo Tribe - similar to Monument Valley. The draw to this one-of-a-kind monument is that you can stand in one spot and have one hand in Colorado, the other in Utah, and a foot in New Mexico and Arizona! A must stop photo spot for visitors to southeast Utah!
Four Corners Monument has $5, cash only entry fee. Monument Hours - CLOSED
Four Corners can easily be visited while exploring the following areas; Natural Bridges, Monument Valley area, Arches, Canyonlands, Mesa Verde and other parts of the Grand Circle. Four Corners Monument has a small visitor center, which is open year-round. Additional features include a Demonstration Center with Native American artisans. Vendors sell handmade jewelry, crafts and traditional foods nearby. Self-contained toilets are available.
For years, territorial squabbling between Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah kept the states' borders in flux. In 1912, when the dust settled and the final lines were drawn, a cement pad was built on-site to officially mark the spot where the states came together.

GOOSENECKS STATE PARK

The San Juan River twists and turns through the canyon, flowing a distance of over six miles while advancing one and a half miles west on its way to Lake Powell. Gaze upon the results of 300 million years of geological activity, where the San Juan River winds and carves its way through the desert 1,000 feet below.

The Dugway is carved from the cliff face on the edge of Cedar Mesa. As you ascend or descend to road various viewpoints reveal sweeping views of Valley of the Gods, Goosenecks State Park, and Monument Valley.
