Utah’s Canyon Country
Located in the Four Corners region, San Juan County Utah provides a perfect, centralized base of travel to the world-renowned features that surround us. National Parks and Monuments, including Monument Valley, Canyonlands, Arches, Lake Powell, Natural Bridges, Hovenweep, and Mesa Verde are all within easy driving distance. State parks include Edge of the Cedars Museum and the great Goosenecks of the San Juan River. Cultural and natural history experiences abound in Canyon Country. Edge of the Cedars State Park & Museum highlights the Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) culture with the largest display of artifacts in the Four Corners. Newspaper Rock Recreation Site offers a large petroglyph panel. Cowboy and Mormon history add color to the county’s foundation as do Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and Ute artisans whose work is available at local trading posts and galleries. Our annual crafts fairs, rodeos, ATV Safari, and the International Balloon Festival add to San Juan County’s sense of excitement and adventure.
Enjoy river rafting with an excellent guide, jeep into hidden canyons and across mountain ridges, hike, bike, 4-wheel, and ATV into and through Utah’s Canyon Country for the vacation of a lifetime! With 9,000 feet of elevation change – almost 2 miles between 3,700 feet and 12,600 feet – from red rock canyons to alpine splendor, San Juan County has it all!
