  • Beautiful place. A must see at least once in your life. I was fortunate enough to be working and staying in the area and got to drive by this point every day.
  • Great place to take an iconic picture. Just MAKE SURE that you don't get hit if you take a picture in the middle of the road. I saw a couple that were zoned out with their selfie stick almost get hit twice.
  • Beautiful!!. We feel we are part of the movie already! we had a blast taking pictures. just make sure no cars or trucks are approaching when you are in the middle of the road.. make good of your spot.. there are 3 spots where you can take your spot. Theres the best part where Forrest Gump stops.. the sign is harsly visibly if you wont look for it...
  • Well, mind blown. Just go there and then it will hit us, "wow , the location where Forest Gump finally quits running". Gorgeous views. The best view is near the 13 mile mark, beside the novajo American gift shop.
  • Mile marker 13. Good place to pull off and take a picture. Facing southbound.
