Forrest Gump Point is a vantage point for the shutterbugs to run wild. Located in Mexican Hat, USA, it gives the most amazing view of the “road that leads nowhere”. While Forest Gump adds incredible value to the site, the picture of a long, seemingly endless road leading nowhere is remarkable. While you’re in the park, take a break of a couple of minutes here, to capture this incredible manmade landscape. A special place for those interested in photography, make sure you visit this point!

Forrest Gump Point Reviews & Ratings
Yes the view is spectacular (as it also is for miles either side of this spot), but the amount of stupidity displayed by people in the middle of a VERY busy road was shocking. We talked to a local Navajo vendor, he said he sees near misses multiple times every day and occasionally a few hits! Watch out for cars if you really must stand in the middle of the road! During our five minutes on the side of the road, I saw at least three groups get honked at as they were going to play chicken with cars in exchange for a picture of themselves in the middle of the road! Overall a beautiful area. Take time to talk to the local vendors, they are a wealth of information and very friendly!
So fun to go there and take photos. Please remember if you go some basic etiquette: This isn't just for you; take some quick pic and allow others in. Park uphill of the spot. People don't want your 2018 Honda Accord in their photo. Dodgeball rules; call out 'car' and clear the space for vehicles trying to pass. Enjoy it.
Have you ever seen a Movie called Forrest Gump? And are you on a trip to the US West or the Grand Circle? Then you must come here. Trust me. It's just a road. When I see this way, the scene of the film Forest Gump comes to mind. Be careful to take pictures because cars can often run at a fast pace.
Neat place to see. We came in from the south and would have missed it if it weren't for the cars and people at this spot. Who would've though it would have been such a popular spot, great experience.
You just gotta love this view. Btw. don’t go into the park, entrance is $20 and is really boring as you stand close to the “monuments” and don’t see anything. Hiking is prohibited in summer because of the high temperature. You can only drive there whis is... weird.
