US 160 enters New Mexico from Arizona on a two-lane highway that heads northeast through the arid, rolling plains of the Navajo section of the Colorado Plateau. Approximately 0.3 miles (480 m) into the state is an intersection with New Mexico State Road 597 (NM 597), a short highway that leads to the Four Corners Monument, which lies on the quadripoint of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. US 160 continues to the northeast and descends into the San Juan River valley, but the highway crosses into Colorado before reaching the river.
|Location||Flagstaff, AZ–Cortez, CO|
US 160 was originally US 164 in 1964, but was realigned as part of a reconstruction project in 1970.
The entire route is in San Juan County.
