Been many years since I've been by this bridge. My after worked on this bridge during the construction back in the fifties. It is an impressive sight that can take your breath away. As I was driving to this attraction, I heard on the radio, one hundred and fifteen people have leaped to the River six hundred feet below the... More

We parked a couple of minutes walk away and took a look at the various local vendors selling arts and crafts at the side of the road. there was a busker playing some Beatles mostly in tune and then the bridge. The bridge itself is unremarkable looking from the road but when you walk out onto the the bridge itself... More

We walked both sides of the bridge and were suitably impressed by the depth of the gorge. I didn't love the vendors clustered about the rest area. If we had more time, we would have taken the trail down the mesa that leaves from the rest area.

Driving over the Gorge was amazing. Walking back over from the west side was just as impressive and you really appreciate the genius of the construction.

We enjoyed the various stopping points, and took more photos than necessary because each view seemed better than the next. Fun watching the rafters below, and wished we had been able to join them. But the surprise treat was the great array of crafters and vendors at one end of the bridge, selling their wares at good and negotiable prices.... More

The view of the Rio Grande Gorge and the river are a sight to behold from the bridge. If you're in the Taos area, it is an outing not to be missed. The added bonus is a great refreshments bus and the presence of many local artisans selling everything from locally mined minerals to locally grown,spun and woven wool to... More

This is a beautiful natural wonder, and a picturesque bridge as well. The area is clean and kept as a national park should. It's scenic and great for anyone with a camera.

It does not take long to get there and it's free with some nice views of the gorge. You can't really go wrong.

Just a short distance north and west of Taos, crossing the bridge is definitely worth the drive. If you have time, park and walk back to look into the deep chasm. So deep best light is mid day, but if you pass by late, sunset is often spectacular.
