TWILIGHT FILMING LOCATION James View of the Trackers
The cliff from which James is peering down on the trackers is located at The Shire up above the riverbank area. Our guide told us that they had built steps to get up to the area where this scene was filmed. They also used a trail up along the cliff edge overlooking the river for the scene where Edward comes to a sudden stop when he realizes that James has changed direction while tracking Bella. Unfortunately, the trail and area is now over grown with trees, bushes and some poison oak. I decided it was a place I wasn’t going to get to. But I was able to climb up some boulders and see a similar view down upon the trail they used for the scene below James. Chief Swan is out tracking the nomads. James is looking down on them while they hike by with their tracking dogs.
