We were visiting the town of Taos and decided to drive 12 miles to see the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. It was worth the drive. The views are great. I would recommend to see this if you are in Taos.

There's nothing to do there, so if you are looking for something active, this is not it. If you are in Taos, and you don't mind driving 12 miles out of town to see a beautiful view, then do it. This bridge to nowhere can be seen in the movie "Terminator Salvation" - and maybe a few others.

Just a stones throw from Taos this place is worth a stop! The canyon views are breathtaking! I also saw a few locks on the bridge, hmmm...a new Pont de l'Archeveche? The vendors have a few wares for sale, some okay, some fantastic. Purchased a beautiful prayer bowl from Matt Martinez. One of a kind, hand made in Taos, so... More

It doesn't take very long to see it but worth the trek. Stop at Taos Mesa Brewery on the way out or back Earthship Bioventure is just down the road

After a visit to Taos we drove up to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. The view was stunning as we drove by, but we would have had to park far away on the west side, so we drove back across the bridge again. The view was even more stunning on the south side of the bridge. There was snow sprinkled... More

Would be nice to have more information on the bridge. We got tidbits of information from the local vendors by the bridge, who were very friendly. The view was great. With snow and ice on the bridge, we had to be very careful walking on it.

excellent examples of the arts and crafts of past times in Taos. also many of jewelry piece that she designed. Millicent Rogers has an interesting history and if you are interested, you can pick up a book about her in the gift shop. The gift shop alone is worth the trip.
