State Highway 41 (SH 41) is a 9.505-mile (15.297 km) state highway on the Ute Mountain Ute lands in Montezuma County, Colorado, United States, that connects U.S. Route 160 (US 160), northeast of Teec Nos Pos, Arizona, with Utah State Route 162 SR-162 in Utah (southeast of Aneth, Utah). The highway is part of the Trail of the Ancients National Scenic Byway


SH 41 as it enters Colorado from Utah, July 2012

SH 41 begins at an intersection with US 160 in the southwestern corner of Montezuma County, roughly 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Teec Nos Pos and the Four Corners Monument. The highway heads north–northwest paralleling the San Juan River for approximately 9.5 miles (15.3 km) until it reaches its northern terminus at the Utah state line, roughly 8 miles (13 km) southeast of Aneth. The roadway continues west as SR-162 towards Aneth, Montezuma Creek, and Bluff, Utah.[2]


SH 41 was created in 1965-1966 on new alignment.[3] Simultaneously, in June 1965, Utah State Route 262 was extended southeast from Montezuma Creek to meet SH 41 (this extension became SR-162 in 2004).[4]
