If you are near this, esp driving from Taos to the Ski Valley you will pass it, it's worth the quick stop. Beautiful view, really awestruck when we saw from high up and at sunset time. Such a gorgeous part of the country!

I don't like to go out on the bridge because I don't like heights but it is spectacular to view. I've even seen Rocky Mountain Sheep down in the gorge from the bridge.

Took many a picture and some video too. Go on a sunny day and the views are awesome. On the bridge you can see the entire river gorge. So beautiful.

The Gorge is a pretty awesome sight. We got halfway over the bridge; I am not a fan of heights. I was highly amused looking for the rams tucked in the side of the cliff.

If you’re in the area and you don’t do anything else, drive over the bridge, park in the rest area and walk over to take it look. You will not be disappointed.

This is well worth the trip from Taos. It's just a short drive (maybe 10-15 minutes) . The gorge is beautiful. Take a walk out on the bridge to get a great view. On the way out or back stop at Orlando's for a good...More

We took a day trip to Taos and drove over the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. Stunning views and recommend to park and walk over the bridge. It's a very easy walk from the parking area.

A definite "must-see" for travelers going to or through Taos. Decent parking. Modern visitor center with clean bathrooms and a view you won't believe.

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
