National Geographic’s Four Corners Region DestinationMap strikes the perfect balance between map and guidebook and is ideal for a wide range of travelers. The Four Corners Region is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The map guide seeks to contribute to the economic health of communities in the Four Corners Region by promoting geotourism: tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place — its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage and the well-being of its residents. Some of the extra features include:
- Charts detailing visitor centers and nearby state parks
- Colorful photographs featuring the region’s enchanting landscape
- History, leaf viewing, wildflowers, wildlife, and places to visit
- Descriptive content highlighting outdoor recreation opportunities, water recreation, camping, hiking, and the Appalachian Trail
Every Destination Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of any kind of travel. We love technology and enjoy the convenience of GPS, but you can’t plan a trip on a phone screen and navigation doesn’t work where there’s no cell signal. Start your next trip on the right foot with a high-quality folding travel map. Make the most of your next adventure, even if you lose GPS or cell signals. You’ll always be on the correct route with our folding travel maps. Your adventure starts here!
The front side of the Four Corners Destination Map reveals a map of the region spanning from Dixie National Forest in southeastern Utah; to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve and San Isabel National Forest in southwestern Colorado; to Santa Fe National Forest and Cibola National Forest in northwestern New Mexico; to Coconino National Forest in northeastern Arizona. At the center of the map is the Four Corners Monument, where visitors can stand on the only spot in the United States where four states meet. The map also includes a detailed road network and areas of interest such as Indian Reservations and National Parks, Forests, Monuments and Recreation Areas. Archaeological sites, historic sites, museums, scenic areas, geotourism locations, state parks and other points of interest are also featured. The reverse side of the map provides invaluable content for travelers with individual maps and descriptions highlighting archaeological sites, festivals, museums and events; outdoor recreation opportunities; water and geologic features; and arts, music and cultural points of interest. The map also features important travel tips and beautiful photographs showcasing some of many ways travelers can experience this enchanted landscape.
