Back to the Future Part III fliming location: Marty goes back to the Wild West: Monument Valley, Arizona

The final part of the trilogy sends Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) zooming back to the Wild West, and what location could be more iconic than Monument Valley, Arizona?

Seen in such classic John Ford movies as Stagecoach, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and The Searchers, this is still the most breathtaking, Western backdrop, on Route 163, north of Kayenta an the Utah border.

Another classic location was used for the railroad scenes, which filmed on the old Sierra Railroad in central California. A stretch of the line lives on as Railtown 1897 State Historic Park at Jamestown, a few miles south of Columbia. The railroad is also seen in films such as Bad Day at Black Rock, The Great Race and High Noon. It’s on Route 108 east of Stockton, California. The 1885 version of the ‘Mill Valley’ square was reconstructed up here.

Once again, Doc Emmett’s place is the Gamble House, 4 Westmoreland Place in Pasadena, as inthe original Back to the Future, though this time the interiors were on a Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage.
