The dynamic landscape of the American Southwest has captivated adventurers, dreamers, and romantics alike for centuries. The rugged beauty of the geography plays into the wanderlust inherent in the motorcycle enthusiast. And for that Blue Rim Tours created the Four Corners Tour, which takes participants on a 2,050-mile trek through Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona on an exquisite ten day ride through iconic and alluring scenery that has inspired movies, poems, songs, travelers, and dreams, firmly planting an idyllic notion of true, awe-inspiring escape.
A packed, yet fully enjoyable schedule takes lucky participants through the majestic Monument Valley and magical Mesa Verde National Park, over portions of legendary Route 66, across the historic Hoover Dam, into mystical Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and the motorcycle gem of roads; the famous “Million Dollar Highway,” which winds its way through the stunning Colorado Rockies with superlative motorcycle riding to the unique town of Ouray (ice climbing capital of the world). The tour also visits Gooseneck State Park, Prescott National Forest, Petrified Forest National Park, Lake Powell, and Antelope Canyon. The tour gets its name from the point in the American Southwest where four states come together; Four Corners. The tour is a dynamic juxtaposition of prehistoric landscapes, natural wonders, indigenous people, majestic mountains, and modern evolution in the form of Hoover Dam, with contemporary highways tying it all together.
Starting and ending in Las Vegas, this 13-day vacation—designed for moderate skill level riders and limited to 6 – 12 motorcycles—comprises 10 full ride days and one rest day (with two travel days). Daily average rides of 205 miles ensures plenty of time to absorb the grandiose landscapes, rich history, and majestic natural formations and famously wide open spaces. Taking advantage of the mild June weather grants perfect motorcycling temperatures averaging 80˚ F, dropping as low as 50˚ on stunning mountain passes that go as high as 10,000 ft. The Four Corners Tour unfolds primarily on two-lane roads and moves at a comfortable pace to ensure these gems of aesthetics can be thoroughly enjoyed.
The Four Corners Tour was created for riders who prefer to be aboard their own motorcycles, making this quintessential American Southwest road trip an intensely personal experience. This once in a lifetime sojourn will enjoy three- and four-star accommodations. It all adds up to truly memorable motorcycle adventure.

Roads and Traffic
Most of the tour route will involve two-lane, asphalt roads. There will be increased traffic and possibly some parking challenges at National Park Service locations. Road surfaces are generally in very good condition, except for some of the less maintained, more remote roads. There will be frequent curves and elevation changes on many of the routes. Several mountain passes will exceed 10,000 feet. The pace will be kept moderate with frequent stops at historic sites and for comfort as needed.
