The view from the bridge is absolutely amazing!!!!! It is so worth the stop. Ample parking and a walkway along to the bridge to view the gorge and take pictures. I would recommend wearing good walking shoes (no flip flops). We had to walk along...More

Was a good photo OP just walked out to the center of the Bridge and enjoyed the view. The drive thru Carson Natl. Forest was a very scenic drive.

We drove to gorge about 5:30 pm. We anticipated possible big horn sheep sitings and saw a mother with 2 little ones and then another ram. They were far down the gorge but visible! This canyon sneaks up on one as we drove closer! Amazing...More

Stop and take pics. Very breathtaking. You can park and walk across the bridge. One of a kind. Hold on to the handrail!

The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is a useful bridge as it shortens the route across Northern New Mexico. You can walk across it or go to the visitor's center and see the depth of the gorge, as well as rafters during high water season. I...More

Park your car and walk back across the bridge. Yes, it sways a little and if you don't like heights, don't walk across. I made it half way and it was spectacular.

Walking out on the bridge, you can get a bit dizzy and can even freak out a little bit when you feel the bridge shake. It is an amazing view, and your heart will beat when looking over the edge. The sad part is you...More

What a beautiful surprise in a flat expanse! Plan to stop! I wish we’d been able to! We were driving and ... surprise! The Rio Grand hundreds of feet straight down!

This is a neat place to stop and take a few pictures. The gorge is quite a sight to see. Sadly, many people have checked out by plunging off the bridge. Don't do that.

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.
