Four Corners Monument and Navaho Tribal Park The only place in the USA that four states have a common border

This is $5/person to enter the 4 corners area. A lot of hype and not worth it imho.

Interesting place. It does cost to enter, and it isn't a hike. If you are by it, why not? Where else would you be in 4 states at once?

Crowded and cost $10 to enters. Cool to do once but not again.

I have always wanted to be in four states in once. I can now say I have.

This was a really fun stop! Obviously, it’s neat to see where all four states meet, but what we really enjoyed was the Dancing Horse Trail right by the monument. It’s a really simple walk up to the top of these rocks, that offers a spectacular view of the monument, the San Juan River, and all four states. If you’re going to be stopping at Four Corners, I highly recommend this simple trail and the view that meets you at the top.

I've stopped here a bunch of times thru the years. Kinda cool. Nothing fancy other than the only place in the U.S. that has 4 states that meet at a common spot. Not that far off the highway if you're in the area.

If you're already in the area then it's worth the stop. No difficult hiking, it's just a neat thing to see.

As other reviewers have mentioned, four states corner together here but it is certainly not a trail. It will cost you $5 per person to enter and check it out. There are vendors on all sides of the monument selling trinkets and such. It is nice to say you've been there and maybe buy a souvenir. It's only 0.4 miles off of U.S. Highway 160 if you happen to be passing by. There are bathrooms on site and you can buy food ("Indian Tacos" and more while I was there).

I suppose that it's cool to be in four states at once, but there's not much here except a circle on the ground.

Fun thing to go visit to say you've done it. The only place where you can stand in four states at one time.

This is not really a trail; just something to say you've been there. It is the only place in the USA where four state borders meet: Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. The Navaho Indians sell trinkets to the public, and you can get a photo on the spot where the states meet. I was there in the late 1960's, and the visitor center was not there, and it was not that crowded.
