We decided to take a detour on route 64 to visit the rugged gorge. I was afraid to pull my iPhone out while walking the steel deck arch bridge on a chilly day. A light rain and breeze made me pull onto my jacket tighter...More

Beautiful view, though you do have to climb onto a highway bridge for the best sightlines. Worth the short trip from Taos.

A bridge high above the Rio Grande, with vertical canyon walls over a thousand feet high. It's always fun to walk across the structure and gawk at the river far below. There are always vendors along the side of the road with pretty good deals...More

The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is spectacular! There is a rest area with parking so that you can get out of your car and walk across the bridge.

We debated on whether it would be worth it to stop and we are so glad we did. The sweeping views are just unreal and the sunlight was like nowhere else. I highly recommend stopping and checking this out. Plus, there’s a really great little...More

The view from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge was truly incredible! The gorge was a lot deeper than I expected!!

Great bridge to view the gorge. The bridge is a bit shaky when large trucks drive over so hold on. I would not recommend this bridge for people who are afraid of heights.

Just the sheer size makes you feel insignificant. Great views of the canyon and at sundown a great backdrop from the mountains.

1st time in Taos. It was a nice view on a beautiful day. Some merchants in the parking lot. Wife found some earrings she liked. Very laid back and relaxing. Heard from some folks later that they saw a bunch of big horn sheep. Wish...More

The bridge north of Taos a few miles crosses over one of nature's wonders, the Rio Grande gorge. To look down from the bridge above the river, several thousand feet below you, is truly an awesome, even disquieting experience. It is an awesome sight at...More

Yes you do not pay to view the bridge. I agree that I would have your dog on a leash because cars zoom by while you are walking on a narrow sidewalk.

I would suggest driving to the John Dunn bridge which is a few miles upstream and allows you to actually put your feet in the water without climbing down a trail. The drive is very bumpy, mostly gravel, but very beautiful.

No There is no cost of any kind unless you choose to buy something from some of the local vendors that set up portable booths near the bridge. Nice little rest stop on the West end which is where most of the photos are... More
