San Juan County Information

San Juan County is the location of The Four Corners Monument, which marks the quadripoint in the Navajo Nation and Ute Mountain Tribal Lands in the Southwest United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet. It is located on the Colorado Plateau west of U.S. Highway 160, 40 miles southwest of Cortez, Colorado. It is centered at 36°59'56.31532"N, 109°02'42.62019"W.
Four corners marker
Not only is the point a perpendicular four-corner intersection, it is the only point in the United States shared by four states, leading to them being called the Four Corners region. A Ute Indian reservation abuts the point in Colorado. The landmark is run by the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation Department and is a popular tourist attraction, despite its isolated and even somewhat remote location.

The position of the point was initially surveyed by E. N. Darling in 1868, and marked with a sandstone marker. The first permanent marker at the point was placed in 1912. It was replaced in 1992 with a granite marker embedded with a large circular bronze disk around the point, surrounded by smaller, appropriately located state seals and flags.
