Lake Britton – The Bridge From the movie "Stand By Me”
For the movie
fans of "Stand by Me" (1986) Lake Britton Bridge was used to capture one
of the memorable scenes where the run-away kids manage to last minute avoid a
train passing the bridge.
Today this bridge
does not use any longer for trains and it has a nice view of the lake below it.
The bridge is
in Northern California near Burney Falls at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial
If you are
driving north on highway 89 from Burney State Park after about two and a half miles,
you will cross a large bridge over Lake Britton.
Soon after crossing the bridge,
you will pass under a small train bridge, slow down and you will see exit on
the right-hand side. Turn right on to that road that led to Dusty Campground. The
bridge will be on your right.
