This spectacular view may be witnessed just a short ride from Taos. The vendors who setup along the road mar the approach to this special view.

The Grand Gorge Bridge is worth the drive to see. We met a very nice Native American named David that had made some wonderful jewelry that we purchased as keepsakes that we still wear today.

This view especially at sunset was worth the out of the way stop. There are no bathrooms, restaruants, nothing. You pull off into a gravel area and walk up to the bridge. These pull offs are on both sides of the bridge. This is a huge bridge! Bring a jacket as it gets very windy/cold. I highly recommend going at... More

It is pretty self-explanatory, but the gorge is a beautiful sight to see. Getting out onto the bridge is easy enough, but I would not recommend this to anyone who is at all unnerved by heights. About 5 feet onto the bridge on either side results in a good 10 to 15 food drop below the bridge. Another 15 feet... More

Definitely worth stopping at least once and walking across the bridge. The scenery, surrounding and below, is breathtaking. The canyon itself is a natural wonder worthy of the recent National Monument status. The best times for photography, early evening and early morning, or cloudy days. The best times to visit, off-season and mid-week to avoid crowds. The rest area on... More

We stopped at a rest stop nearby and walked over some rocks to get down to the bridge. It was very windy so hold on to what you value. There were bighorn sheep right next to the road. Many local artists were selling works of art etc. along the road. By the visitors center there was a trail and we... More

Definitely worth the drive outside of Taos. Bring extra water, sunscreen, and wear good footwear and take a hike along the level rim of the gorge. We went during the middle of the day in September, and the light was not conducive to pictures. Ask locals when the best time to go is. Additional signage explaining the geology of the... More

Gorgeous view! It's amazing what Mother Nature can do. I just wish I had been a little braver, and could've walked further out onto the bridge...

A sight I was not expecting. We were traveling via motorcycle and the roads on either side were quite scenic as well.
