This is a must see if you like natural and man-made wonders. The bridge is impressive, but the view of the Rio Grande Gorge in person is phenomenal. We stopped here on our trip from Taos to Sante Fe.

Yeah, the bridge is nice. I like bridges a lot. On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a solid 5.5 as bridges go. But the gorge is spans is spectacular and, but for the bridge, it would be hard to really see the gorge in all its glory. In terms of dramatic lighting, probably early morning and late... More

The bridge is about 7 miles outside of Taos. It's amazing to see how the Rio Grande eroded the rock over the centuries. What is most interesting is the remains of a car that failed to jump from one side to the other. It is implanted in the wall of Gorge.

Coming from Santa Fe, stop at the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center - very helpful staff. Take the extra time to drive along NM 570 - mostly a gravel/dirt road along the river bed. Great camping spots and places for hikes. Visitor Center staff will provide maps. Views along this route are spectacular and we came across a group of... More

You should not miss this. You can walk across the bridge and look down into the gorge. Sunset is a great time to visit.

Touristas all along the bridge. Indian jewelry sellers at the parking lot. A short 10 mile drive from Taos. Not a bucket list must.

Very unique and lovely place. Worth the stop or drive on out from Taos! It's best if you park on the west end.

Just a short ride outside Taos- worth the ride over there. We were both taken by the stunning view of the bridge and the depth of the rio grande river valley.
