Just a fun stop. Great view and facilities available. Fun to see vendors selling their wares alongside the road.

Our family stopped here for a quick visit after dinner in Taos. My kids were amazed at the beauty of it (they've never seen the Grand Canyon :) Since we went in the evening, there were no vendors (or bathrooms) open.

This is one of the sites in New Mexico that is worth visiting. Just by going there you will remember in how many movies you have seen the bridge and the background. The background of the mountains behind it is as spectacular as the bridge and canyon.

Staying in the Abiquiu area and took the family to Taos for the day. I wasn't sure if this would be worth the detour, but I am glad we did it. The view was pretty incredible. As we were driving up, the gorge seems pretty unassuming and you really see just flat land on either side and what looks like... More

If you walk even a little way along the rim of the Gorge you get the most stunning views of the river, the bridge and the mountains. Absolutely one of my favorite Taos sites.

Located 7 miles west of Taos, you come upon a bridge out in the flat terrain only to be 'wowed' by one of the most amazing views that you can find in this wonderful country! Breathtaking and amazing! Park on the west side of the bridge and walk back across it. You will also find Native American vendors on the... More

The bridge is free to visit and self-guided. If you visit during the afternoon there might be rafters on the river below. Parking is a dirt lot, but close to bridge. Local artists set up along parking area to offer jewelry and art pieces for sale. A quick stop and stroll can provide an excellent experience.

We drove during our visit in Taos. It's beautiful and is worth driving to. We parked on the road and walked over. Before leaving we stopped at the painted school bus for ice cream. Between the five of us, we ordered ice cream with candy (vanilla ice cream with 1 piece of candy on top), a orange cream slush and... More

A stop that won't disappoint! Have made 4 visits to the midpoint on the bridge and each has been rewarding!
