Very nice view from the bridge. Very much a carnival atmosphere when we visited on a Saturday afternoon. There were many tables/booths set up by local residents selling their wares. Be safe when finding a parking spot near the bridge. The road, US 64, is very busy when we came thru this area. Crossing the road can be a hassle... More

Words and pictures fail I'm afraid and it is not just the bridge and gorge it is that in the setting. It helps to get some understanding of the geological framework here too to fully appreciate what is going on. There are wonderful walks on the rim, down the gorge and on the bridge.

The Rio Grande gorge bridge is a short car ride west of Taos. The views are spectacular and well worth the drive.

Seems like it's miles down to the river. It reminds me alot of the Royal Gorge bridge in Colorado. There is a decent visitory center. Hint though: park on the "other" side of the river and you'll have a shorter walk.

Nice stop 15 miles after Taos. Great view on tve Gorge from the bridge. Be careful, especially with kids as sidewalks are not very large and there is some traffic. Local vendors sell their products near the rest area. The view is awesome !

You can't miss this place if you're around, the view is incredible and unique!.... the only sad part, is that there's an emergency telephone for those trying to jump :-(

This bridge suddenly appears as you are driving out of Taos on route 64. There are no natural features that warns you it is upcoming. You are suddenly on the bridge looking into a deep abyss. Park on west side and walk back to center of bridge for spectacular views.

The views from the bridge and the parking area are outstanding. The gorge and the mountains are exceptional. Only a few minutes outside of Taos, so you should take the time to visit, especially if the weather is nice. Good photo opportunity.

The Gorge Bridge is definitely worth a quick stop. The views are awesome and intimidating. There was a herd of big horn sheep grazing nearby which also adds to the experience
